Your faithful editor @gaiapunk here:
First of all,
I hope you were inspired and awakened to action by that awesome interview with our local permaculture and myco wizard Paul Stamets.
Well, I magically awoke at 4:00am and decided that I’ve had enough sleep (4hrs) and that the day was to begin in full AWESOMENESS (it’s even sunny today very rare for an Olympia winter day). Maybe it had something to do with the excitement of knowing I would be announcing a new Project Page and a new project the 7 Precious Mushrooms Zine! The 7 Precious Mushrooms are a collection of seven key medicinal mushrooms that boost the immune system and whose active ingredients fight numerous diseases. After taking these mushrooms in tincture form and experiencing the positive effects for myself I decided I wanted to learn and share as much as possible regarding their miraculous properties. This project will be broadcast to the wider net community and will be conceived as a open source collaboration in partnership with well loved Spore Liberation Front. If you have something that you would like to contribute please email me at thejulianeffect(at)gmail.com with the subject line “open source mycology”. The first contribution is a slideshow about the Reishi mushroom gifted to me by the lovely Miriah Mc Donald. Please broadcast this project far and wide on the internets like the good little info spore that it is.
Black Reishi (Ganoderma sinense), Red Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), Reishi mycelium, Chaga (Inonotus obliquus), Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), Maitake, (Grifola frondosa) and Cordyceps mycelium (Cordyceps sinensis)
