Thesis Statement


Edible mushrooms are a delicacy all over the world. Mushroom Foraging (the finding and cultivating of mushrooms) has been a hobby and income source throughout history. Today, society has fallen for common misconceptions of wild mushrooms related to their safety and obscurity. Through extensive design research into the culture of mycologists and mushroom hunters, my goal is to educate people on the values of mushroom foraging and to make this seasoned tradition more accessible to people.
