MyColores: Sierra Sur in the southern mountains of Oaxaca, MX August 15-23, 2024 Hosted by The Fungivore
Join me, Kim, and Zach of the Fungivore for an adventure of a lifetime.
Take in Oaxaca’s rich culture, cuisine & nature over 7 full days & 8 nights as we forage, cook, & craft with local Zapotecs in verdant Sierra Sur mountains & explore the ancient history, epic food and indigenous artisanship of the region. Alissa Allen, veteran mushroom dyer and founder of Mycopigments, will be joining us from Seattle, Washington, to lead our forays and mushroom dyeing workshop.
Located halfway between Oaxaca City and the Pacific Coast, high up in the mountains, the mushroom famous town of San Jose Del Pacifico sits on a ridge of mixed pine forest. The entire town is adorned with mushrooms, from the wool products to the murals, the wood carvings, art, food and more. We partner with local guides to explore the many varieties of dyeing mushrooms, and our friend Chef Ariadne provides masterful dishes of edible mushrooms for our enjoyments over the five days/six nights in the mountains. Our trip will be book-ended in the cultural and foodie mecca of Oaxaca City with most of our time immersed in the mountains and valleys, exploring the diverse edible (and dyeable) landscape with our Zapotec friends, sharing generations of knowledge from nature to traditional cooking, natural dyeing, fiber arts, and more.
