Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

Entheogenesis Australis presents Garden States Microdose Livestream - From Sunday 5th July 11 am- 6:30 pm 2020

 

We are releasing the first talk in a new series taken from our recent Garden States Microdose Livestream. Caine Barlow's talk titled 'Australian Psilocybe and their Lookalikes' received a great deal of positive feedback. If you are a lover of mushrooms and the Psilocybe genus then this talk is for you.

 

Title - Australian Psilocybe and their Lookalikes Synopsis

 

While the Genus Psilocybe in Australia, is represented by few formally defined species, there are comparatively many more look-alike species. Many of them are poisonous, some can cause liver or kidney damage, some deadly. Being able to identify the lookalikes as well as the desired mushroom goes a long way to increasing your own safety and being able to help friends identify theirs. Foragers should know how to identify Galerina sp., Hypholoma sp., and those from the genus Cortinarius. Talk Slide Link http://www.entheogenesis.org/wp-conte...

 

 

Bio - Caine Barlow

Caine Barlow is a fungi educator who has been cultivating and studying fungi for 13 years. In 2019 he completed a Master's degree where his research project was to predict a preliminary conservation status for many Australian fungi.

 

As a fungi educator, he is passionate about encouraging people to see fungi in a new light by demonstrating how easy they are to grow in kitchen and garden environments.

 

He likes to inspire a sense of creativity in the cloning and propagation of mycelium, experimentation with different substrates, and how to hack together equipment.

 

Through exploring the forests of Far South Tasmania, Caine's interest in fungi evolved from foraging to learning how to culture native species for conservation, and on to cultivating a variety of culinary and medicinal species. Then to further studies into mycorrhizal fungi, mycoremediation, and mycorestoration.

 

When not growing fungi, Caine volunteers his time with MYCOmmunity applied mycology, and Fungimap. He is also a regular contributor, “trusted identifier” and administrator on a variety of fungi oriented website forums and facebook groups. Caine has an Instagram account "Guerrilla Mycology” where he blogs about his cultivation techniques and the ethnomycology of fungi he finds in the field.
