Consider yourself part of that enlightened community? Then the 40th annual Telluride Mushroom Festival is for you. Yes, even if Covid-19 has you confined to quarters.

It is a well known fact that mycelium are the original World Wide Web, communicating with one another, making key decisions without a real center (the world according to Google). Starting Monday, August 10, we can make like fungi and do that too through our participation in the Telluride Institute’s Telluride Mushroom Festival (TMF) – online.

All (very limited) in-person spots are now available during the regular registration period from Aug 5-12 for a $100 donation. In town the week of August 10?Registration for stakeholder events is now open. Go here for more.
