Kyle Collins

Harkening from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Kyle Collins moved to California in search of training in sustainable agriculture and permaculture. Kyle's love of fungi grew out of the exploration and personal development of his college years. Kyle has studied and worked with fungi as an Environmental Educator, Permaculturalist, and Farmer. In 2007 he journeyed north to the home of Fungi Perfecti and received his Mushroom Cultivation Certification from Paul Stamets. Kyle has seven years experience of working with and growing organic culinary and medicinal mushrooms at home. He has taught workshops in mushroom cultivation and mycological restoration for two years. His programs fuse permaculture principles with techniques for home mushroom cultivation.
