This was a special day in the neighborhood meeting a great kid/friend who is eager to learn and engage at the community space. Looking forward to the warmer weather when we can all collaborate again. Until then, it's good to utilize the winter months for planning all that we want to bring into fruition.

We didn't get many pictures from the event due to an overwhelming amount of love and quality time spent with family/friends/community. But, here's an action shot of @katethegreat01 and @drutroit getting down and getting psilly.
A huge thank you to everyone who came out, donated, supported and enjoyed the day into the night with us! We raised over $500 to provide Christmas for those in need and a generous amount of winter gear for those who could use some extra warmth this winter. Teamwork makes the dream work. Raffle winners will be announced later today! We love you all! Looking forward to next year!

I love growing Hericium! Not only is it jaw dropping beautiful but it contains nerve growth stimulators (erinacines), that help induce neurogenesis that improves cognitive function. And, don't we all want our main offices - ๐Ÿง  strong, healthy and high functioning!?

The Fungi Freights Annual Charity Drive is right around the corner! @teslaa_rain and @goldeneye__ are back at it with bells on and of course grandma Abraham's jackets. ๐ŸŽŠ
We will be collecting winter gear (coats, gloves, hats, scarves, socks and boots only please) to be donated to St. Vincent de Paul. All monetary donations will go toward providing Christmas for families in need. Bring some cash for the donation based bar and/or to join in on the raffle.
Venmo will also be accepted - @fungifreights. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ต๐ŸŽŸ
Come enjoy a drink and some pizza for a good cause - @jyarsch will be throwing down some classic jams in the heated tent and we'll have the bonfire and bocce ball going!
Donations, community cheer and your presence will be greatly appreciated! Hope to see you there!

We're getting ready for another groovy event at @armageddonbeachparty! We're going to take a journey through the realm of fungi. From phylogeny, anatomy and biology to bizarre species and fascinating facts and stories. Come learn how fungi are responsible for creating our first soils, antibiotics and some delicious cheese and how they play a major role in our evolution. More info on our website! Link in bio!

Such a blessed evening hosting @darren_le_baron. Grateful for his time, knowledge and experience within plant and fungi medicine and his research on they're ancient origins. I know we all had a lot to digest after that presentation. It's all about expanding our minds while looking within for true sense of self and healing. Thanks to all who came and and bared with the mosquitoes and minor technical difficulties. We're working hard to create this community space to engage in mycology & natural sciences one step at a time and your support makes it all worth while!

that's an edible arrangement if I've ever seen one.

What's your favorite thing about the Teonanacatl, the sacred mushroom, flesh of the gods, psilocybe, velada experience?

Do you ingest with respect and awareness?

Such a great day with such amazing people! We all had a creative and fun time exploring fungi for natural dyes. Everyone's silk scarf (dyed with Phaeolus schweinitzii) came out absolutely beautiful and each one was individually unique, as are we all!
Thank you to all who came out, looking forward to more fungi workshops this year!

I love this city. Detroit is such a special place that I've come to hold dear to my heart since I was a child. Such spirit, such soul, such hope and determination despite all the setbacks, deterioration and broken dreams.
We rise out of the ashes to be born again!
Here's to Detroit and to those that never gave up on it.

To quote the Detroit flag: โ€œSperamus Meliora Resurget Cineribus"ย 
("We hope for better things. It will rise from the ashes")

We aren't just an ordinary mushroom farm because our mushrooms have a mission. With time, Fungi Freights hopes to equip freight containers with the necessities to grow mushrooms and ship them to areas of the world affected by food scarcity. The mushrooms can be grown sustain-ably by its destinations main agricultural waste. By providing the structure, equipment and basic knowledge on mushroom cultivation, individuals can successfully grow mushrooms for their community.

Today is #InternationalMicroorganismsDay, so that is our inspiration for #TrueOrFalseThursday. CORRECTION - the answer should actually be FALSE, as humans have MORE microbial cells than human (thanks for the help FungiFreights) Learn more about microorganisms here: https://www.amnh.org/explore/microbe-facts #MSUSciFest #MSUSTEAM
I am in the area and interested in learning about any possible volunteer opportunites/internships or anything of that nature โ˜บ๏ธ
