DIV. 2 FUNDRAISER – $18 - 3LB OYSTER MUSHROOM KITS
ORDERS ARE DUE BY SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 28th
Ms. Yau’s class has been working on a cool project we call the MUSHROOM PROJECT through an Arts Grant we got from ArtStart. Throughout October, they worked with Isabelle and Willoughby, performance artist and mycologist respectively to learn about mushrooms, their fungal properties and how to cultivate them.
This included inoculating the mycelium (which are the vegetable thread like part of the mushroom) and spawning them in a wet sawdust. Then boiling the mushroom to dye some fabric, designing 3D mushroom shapes with paper first, then cutting out the fabric, sewing them together and stuffing them with the mycelium spawn sawdust to make them into stuffies.
Div. 2 has installed them in our school garden and are documenting their growth every day and putting the pictures together to make a stop-motion video. Mme. Szeto and Mme. Pawer’s class are helping to document this process for about 3 weeks. Now, we need to raise at least $1,000 as part of this project.
