Thanks to all for the support during our time on Harvest Funders! The fundraiser isn’t over yet, but we only have 8 days left! Send this far and wide to see how much more funding we can bring in before our project closes! We are super excited about this project, and the opportunity to benefit our community and the community of others. The potential for land remediation through the use of fungi is only growing, and holds some very promising potential. Help us contribute to this body of knowledge!
We also want to send out our deepest thank you to the people who have funded us this far! Most of them have not shared their names, and many we can’t see their email address either, but none the less we are extremely grateful for all the support thus far! We will do our best to reach out to funders to help keep them updated on project happenings and get them their gifts for donations!
Check out the video, and share with all your friends. Thank you to all for such great support!
Hello everyone! Just wanted to put a quick post up about the launching of our herbicide fundraiser yesterday on HarvestFunders.com! This is a great new crowd funding website started by a guy named Jesse here locally. It has made some national news so we are hoping to get this fundraiser spread far and wide. So far we have done so with great success raising $736.00 in the opening day! This is nearly 10% of our target goal, but we only have 30 days to do it so the more help the better!
We want to give a deep and grateful thanks to the funders so far:
Linley Dixon- a wonderful local farmer here in the area, she runs Adobe House Farms, and also holds a PhD in plant pathology. Linley has been associated with identifying some of the herbicide contamination around here and is avid that we move forward with this project. Thanks to Linley for kicking off the fundraiser, and donating within the first few opening hours! Please visit her website, and check out their Farmer’s Market stand in Durango
Jerry Deall- Jerry is one of our long time, and greatest supporters. In fact, he is largely the reason that San Juan Mycology is in existence. Jerry is Gabe’s father and provided the startup loan for our company, and continues to be a strong force of support for our success. Jerry resides in Northern Colorado but has spent many a day in the Southwest helping us line up electrical and air systems for the cultivation, and generally just being a great guy! Jerry has made a significant contribution to the research project and our deepest gratitude is heading his way today!
We also received two donations from anonymous donors- whoever you are, wherever you are, thank you for your contribution to the project. Your support is greatly appreciated. Help us spread the word far and wide. We only have 29 more days, but we are confident we can achieve our goal! Visit our post at harvestfunders.com
We are super excited to announce the official launch of our 2014 Summer Education Series! We have spent all winter developing the workshop series, and we think you will enjoy it as much as we will! Some highlights of the upcoming Education series:
1. Learn fun, low-tech methods for home cultivation of your favorite gourmet mushrooms!
2. Learn about all the ways fungi benefit our natural and human world!
3. Learn ways to benefit your health through mushroom medicinals, and how you can make these powerful medicines at home!
4. Join us with the help of Jason Blankenship, local chef and owner of Olio in Mancos, to learn the fine art of cooking with gourmet mushrooms!
All of these exciting topics will be covered over the course of the Summer of 2014. One class a month during June, July, August and September, so hopefully they won’t dig into your summer too much, although we don’t think you will mind!
San Juan Mycology will also pledge 10% of all proceeds to our CSE (Community Supported Education) Program, which will help us to get into public schools and teach kids about ecology, local food, and of course the magical world of mushrooms!
