WHY "MYCELIUM?"

"Mycelium is the part of the fungus that grows underground in thread-like formations. It connects roots to one another and breaks down plant material to create healthier ecosystems. Mycelium is the largest organism on earth. Interconnectedness. Remediation. Detoxification."

Resilience in

Pandemic Times program

On March 11th 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated the Coronavirus (COVID19) a ‘pandemic.’ As of March 23rd, over 41,254 cases have been reported in the United States, with 480 of those cases listed in the Bay Area. Testing in the US has been minimal, leading health officials to estimate that those numbers will skyrocket in the next few weeks. Currently over 6 million (97%) students have been affected across the state of California. As the impact continues to spread, already vulnerable low-income communities in urban environments such as the Bay area will face increased risks as resources will continue to be stretched beyond capacity.

In response, Mycelium Youth Network is responding with a series of videos, webinars, panels and live stream to boost our communal physical, emotional, and mental resilience. All of our classes for youth are offered for free with adult workshops offered on a donation basis and no one turned away for lack of funds.
