My Name is Zack Lane, I’m 21 years old and a senior at The Evergreen State College. I was born and raised in Seattle, WA before moving to Olympia for school in 2016. Some of my interests include skateboarding, photography, foraging, hiking, and dancing. I currently am employed at the child care center on campus at Evergreen. I am studying botany, mycology, and ecological systems with the intention of working it into sustainable studies and permaculture design. One of my main goals right now is to finish my education and start working and gaining experience in an agricultural environment. Eventually I would like to work with permaculture food forests and in helping educate young adults on sustainable living
Workshop Name:Exploration of Mycology
Saturday 4:30-6:00pm, Youth Temple
~What I plan to present in my workshop is an introduction to mushrooms and mycology. I want to give a presentation on what mushrooms and fungi are, their ecological function, potential uses including medicinal benefits, identification techniques and resources, and foraging tips and guidelines. I want to provide a basic understanding of all the amazing things that I have found in my studies of mycology, especially with their potential efficiency in bioremediation.
