Another successful Fungi & Fibre Symposium


It’s been just over a month since Symposium week, a grand event by all accounts. With 120 registrants from all around the world, the energy was high in our little community. The dyepots barely had a chance to cool down from one day to the next, the forests couldn’t have been more generous with their mushrooms, and everyone went home with smiles on their faces.

Thanks to participant Lesley O’Keefe, we can enjoy looking back on the week’s events with this Youtube video, which also highlights the beauty of BC’s Sunshine Coast—and shows why those of us who live here feel we’re the most fortunate people in the world.

    1. Yes, you would have greatly enjoyed it – good energy, good company, and great colours. Sad to see our season almost coming to an end, but the time spent hunting for mushrooms can now be spent over the dyepots!

  1. Hi, I am wondering if there any plans for the next symposium in Norway yet. I have a friend who is interested. Thanks. and thanks for your newsletter!



    1. Hi Donna: We haven’t heard anything yet, apart from the dates they announced last year (can it already be a year?), August 13-19. I’m sure the organizers will be emailing everyone who was at the 2016 event, and I plan to follow that up with an email to all the Canadian delegates. I’m hoping to hear something soon so we can look into booking flights. Any chance you’ll be joining your friend?
