We would like to welcome you to participate in the 2nd New Moon Mycology Summit(NMMS). This year located in the Southern corner of the Adirondack Mountains in occupied Mohawk territory in Thurman, NY. This Summit is organized by The Mycelium Underground, a network of folks devoted to education, justice, the environment and mycology. It will take place August 29-Sept 2, 2019.
The NMMS is an attempt to merge disciplines, trades, passions & ideas together, drawing on fungi as the common thread, and providing a platform for addressing justice, Earth skills, and other cross-disciplinary topics.This gathering mimics the mycelium of the mushroom, the web of cells connecting all life, supporting many systems & simultaneously decomposing and creating pathways. This is why we are inviting such a broad spectrum of educators & organizations; we want to create a true interdisciplinary experience.
Five days of workshops, lectures & hands-on learning
The NMMS will be a time and place where people can physically gather to re-energize, learn, exchange ideas, develop collaborations, and make connections, all with the spirit of mending the disconnects in our culture, earth, and communities. Although there is a focus on mycology, this event will be a platform for people from diverse areas of expertise to learn from each other and to find common ground to solve real problems.
Due to the nature of this grassroots, sliding-scale event, we can offer you a basic stipend of $150-250 for your presence and participation at the Summit. If we surpass the estimated ticket sales, we will contribute more toward your travel expenses. If you would like to, on the day of your presentation, we’d be happy to have you set up a table to vend. While you stay with us, we will have home cooked meals for you to enjoy, an assortment of beverages, and we will try our best to accommodate your needs for your workshop & your stay.
Thank you for you inquiry! In the meantime, let us know if you have any questions!
