Creeping Garden at Telluride Mushroom Festival approaches

The Telluride Mushroom Festival in Colorado is fast approaching and there is a special screening of The Creeping Garden on Thursday, August 18 at 3:30pm at the Sheridan Opera House.

‘In the Telluride Mushroom Festival all aspects of the fungi come under scrutiny — food, fun and poison. It’s the most eclectic celebration of science and savagery that I’ve every experienced, a cyclic amalgalm of baskets, wax paper, merlot, bagpipes, muddy boots, boiled straw and basidiae. And as a poet, bioregionalist, and deep ecologist, I can think of no better way to reconnect to this place I call home than once a year exploring the buried native secrets of mycelia with my friends of the mushroom clan.’  Art Goodtimes, Festival Faculty member
