For the latest episode of Homer Grown, we travel to that 'micro farm' that host Desiree Hagen mentions in every episode. Darius Kleine of Fritz Creek Fungi chats about mushroom cultivation, foraging wild mushrooms, the potential for mushroom mycelium as a building material. The episode, just like mycelia, branches into many directions including mushrooms that control insects, how mushroom cultivation is integrated into a circular operation model on the farm, and who we want for our 'apocalypse team.'

And Homer Soil and Water's Nicole Arevalo has your weekly rundown of events and oportunites in local agriculture.

Support for Homer Grown comes from Wagon Wheel Garden and Pet and Woda Botanicals.

Music for this episode is provided by local musicans Glacier Maximus and Trial and Terror.

This episode first aired September 18, 2021.
