CRITTER kicks off 2010 with the Mother Cultural Exchange. Mother cultures are used to make breads, cheeses, yogurt, kombucha and many other delicious edibles. They are also used to grow mushrooms, plant stem-cell tissues and even adult beverages! So, come on down to CRITTER and see demonstrations of how to start your own cultures at home, taste the foods made from these examples, and see some high-tech DIY methods for growing plants, mushrooms & more! If you’ve got cultures, bring some in to trade with other ‘cultivators’ and if you’ve never heard of this before—all the better! Learn the secrets of the tastiest and healthiest foods directly from their hosts, hear music to culture by, and take home a few living samples of your own! CRITTER's founder & director Phil Ross will be demonstrating some of the methods used to create Mycotectural Alpha, featured in Time Magazine: Industrial-Strength Fungus.
