If you are interested in mushrooms and don’t know anyone else that shares your passion or if you’re trying to expand your knowledge about mushrooms, consider joining the Mycology club at Novato High. Yes, there is a club about mushrooms at our school and it’s a fun, friendly, and special place to be. The Mycology club is about science, food, and culture. This club is not about psychedelic mushrooms and does not support the use of drugs.
This club consists of experienced mushroom enthusiasts and very new enthusiasts who came to the club with little to no knowledge about Mycology. Some who have even joined just to make friends. It's a warm and welcoming club.
Junior Cailan Ferguson described his experience with the club.
“Carson Klone brought me into it and showed me this really cool book that had every mushroom ever in it and I’m like ‘wow, I really wanna learn more about all these mushrooms’.”
So if you feel like joining but you aren't too educated on mycology, don't worry. you can gain knowledge at this club.
Additionally, if you like the underground rap scene, you're in luck. Members in this club are big into Soundcloud and even have their own rap group called TRAP B0YZ. You can find them on Soundcloud and Youtube. They film and edit their own music videos and they're the real deal. They are on the come up right now you should go listen to them if you enjoy quality music.
By joining this club, members can take a step into the fungi culture which is different in every part of the world yet similar in many ways as well. From the black truffles in France to the fly agarics in South America and even to the portabello mushrooms at your local grocery store or farmers market, there are tons of people who use these for culinary, medicinal and recreational uses all around the world. So, if you think that mushrooms are interesting and cool, I would recommend that you join this club.
