Monthly Mushroom Speaker Series – Amanda Heidel
January 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
January 22nd (Not Jan 1st) – Amanda Heidel will be presenting a community mushroom farm she is developing in New Paltz
Mushroom Farm, is a collaborative community-based public art project in cooperation with The Reformed Church, Family of New Paltz, Village Grind Cafe, Bacchus Brewery, Mid Hudson Mycological Association and others. Mushroom Farm is a 10 year durational experiment that will be built adjacent to the free community garden on Huguenot Street in Spring 2019. The farm’s structure will take inspiration from a community smokehouse currently situated on Huguenot Street built in the 1800’s that was once a shared space for community to smoke their meats. Mushroom Farm is a collaborative space for education, research, community events, and a recycling system to produce food for the community.
We will be discussing ways that people can get involved with the project as part of the presentation!
