CRITTER Presents: Mother Cultural Exchange!

CRITTER presents:
Mother Cultural Exchange!

Saturday, February 20 from 2-4PM
Cost: Free!  Please RSVP with the number in your party to crittersalon AT gmail.com and the subject heading “Mother Cultures”.

Mother cultures are used to make breads, cheeses, yogurt, kombucha and many other tangy edibles. They are also used to grow mushrooms, pluripotent plant tissues, and even adult beverages! CRITTER kicks off 2010 with the Mother Cultural Exchange, where we’ll have ongoing demonstrations of how to start your own cultures at home, use the exemplar cultures you’ll get to sample, and see some high-tech DIY methods for culturing plants, mushrooms & more! If you’ve got cultures, bring some in to trade with other ‘cultivators’ and if you’ve never heard of this before—all the better! Learn the secrets of the tastiest and healthiest foods directly from their cultivators, hear some live local music, try a few samples & take home some culture of your own! CRITTER’s founder & director Phil Ross (www.philross.org) will be demonstrating some of the methods used when creating Mycotectural Alpha, featured in Time Magazine: Industrial-Strength Fungus (http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1957474,00.html).
