The Grandmothers of Our Ecosystems
Workshops will be offered at the beginner through advanced levels, and include topics in wild mushroom skills, fungal ecology, fungi and human health, and ethnomycology. This is a place to share knowledge and get comfortable with using our mycological skills in a supportive, fungal community!

This weekend-long women's retreat will focus on understanding fungi as the Grandmothers of our ecosystems. Silently shaping the soil beneath our feet, fungi are key players in the health of Earth and trajectory of human culture around the globe. Still, we find ourselves in a time where the study of fungi is considered to be a neglected megascience, their mycelium, a mystery. It is our goal to help modern women connect with the roles and wisdom of our female ancestors who always maintained and shared their visceral understanding of the Fungal Queendom.

Midwest Women’s Herbal held the 1st annual Mycelium Mysteries, A Women’s Mushroom Retreat, on October 6,7, & 8  2017. This event was the first women's mushroom retreat in the entire world. Midwest Women’s Herbal is committed to providing herbal education and opportunities for transformation, immersed in the Wise Woman Tradition. 


The 4th Annual: Mycelium Mysteries A Women's Mushroom Retreat will include:

  • Wild Mushroom Skills: Gathering, identification and preparation 

  • Fungal Ecology: How fungi continually shape our environments 

  • Fungi & Human Health: Mushroom nutrition, medicine making & pathology 

  • Ethnomycology: Mythology & herstory of women in mycology 

  • Mushroom Crafts
