Mission statement: To promote interest, education, and awareness of the Fungi Kingdom within the Whitman

What we do: We grow gourmet mushrooms. We start this growing process from scratch i.e. inoculating fungal spores in grow-bags and then incubating them  in the shed behind Lyman provided by the Physical Plant. We hold clubmeetings every Saturday at 2 pm to discuss and at times identify wild mushrooms that grow around Whitman Campus. We might also organize a lecture and watch documentaries, and cook mushrooms together.

Events: Last year, we had a cooking activity at the GAC in which clubmembers made yummy mushroom dishes.

This year, we will try to screen a documentary campus-wide, and possibly go mushroom-foraging in the spring.
