Mushroom Walk - Keith Williams

Mushroom Walk - Keith Williams

Mushroom biodiversity echoes through the multiple roles mushrooms play: landscape architects, poisoners, food/providers, healers, jesters, clothiers, psychopomps, neural-networks-of-the-world. This immersive workshop will be limited to 15 participants but will be repeated a few times throughout the day and will focus on ways of seeing and ways of being…ideas of mushroom/human relationships that have emerged from our reflections on twenty-plus years of mushrooming in Nova Scotia and beyond.

Keith Williams, like the mysterious mushroom, is many things. Trained as a mycologist, he has worked in the fields of education, agriculture, ethnobotany, and community development and has enjoyed living, eating, and mushrooming across Canada and overseas. He is currently inspired to the point of obsession by gardening.

Basma is a poet and artist with a life-long interest in plants and fungi.
