The meeting will be at the Intown Community Church, 2059 Lavista Road, Atlanta, 30329. We meet from 7:00 to 9:00 with a social time for snacking, identifying mushrooms, browsing guides and making friends. The social time begins at 6:30. Members bring snacks each month. A sign up list for volunteering to bring snacks will be passed around. This is a chance to learn some, connect some and get filled in on some of the club's plans for the year.

MCG features monthly meetings each year between February and November on a variety of fungi-related topics. To view some of our previous meetings go HERE.


At our March meeting, some people took home an Oyster mushroom fruiting bag. Oyster mushrooms are popping out from our test bags as you can see above (this bag belongs to MCG's senior advisor, Suzanne). The variety is Pleurotus sajor-caju purchased from Northwest Mycological Consultants CS-32, Batch 3011 Unit #21 This is an easy cultivation method developed by Milton Tam of the Puget Sound Mycological Society. The method is written up in the most recent issue of Fungi Magazine. Our club will be doing cultivation workshops for people to learn this process.
