Mico-Logica Alters Our Perception of the Magic of Mushrooms
At the point when we consider mushrooms and the southern Mexico province of Oaxaca, the primary thing which generally rings a bell is María Sabina, Huautla de Jiménez and stimulating magic mushrooms. Yet, gradually that is all changing because of the pivotal work of Josefina Jiménez and Johann Mathieu in mycology, through their organization, Mico-lógica.
Situated in the town of Benito Juárez, situated in Oaxaca’s Ixtlán region (all the more generally known as the Sierra Norte, the state’s fundamental ecotourism area), Mico-lógica’s central goal is triple: to prepare the two Mexicans and guests to the country in the ease development of an assortment of mushroom animal types; to instruct about the therapeutic, wholesome and ecological (practical) worth of mushrooms; and to lead progressing research in regards to ideal climatic districts and the variety of bases for mushroom culture.
The French-conceived Mathieu moved to Mexico, and truth be told to Huautla de Jiménez, in 2005. Indeed, coming right to Mexico from France to seek after my advantage in mushrooms appears to be far to travel, Mathieu clarified in a new meeting in Oaxaca. Yet, there truly was not a lot of a chance to lead considers and grow a business in Western Europe, he proceeds, since veneration for mushrooms had been everything except totally annihilated by The Church throughout the span of hundreds of years; and I discovered that Mexico actually keeps a regard and appreciation for the restorative and healthy benefit of hongos. Mexico is a long way from mycophobic.
Huautla de Jiménez is in excess of a five hour drive from the nearest metropolitan focus. Likewise, Mathieu in the long run understood that remaining in Huautla, while holding a noteworthy charm and being in a geographic district helpful for working with mushrooms, would obstruct his endeavors to grow a business and develop far reaching revenue in finding out about organisms. Mathieu got insightful of the expanding notoriety of Oaxaca’s ecotourism networks of the Sierra Norte, and for sure the Feria Regional de Hongos Silvestres (territorial wild mushroom celebration), held every year in Cuahimoloyas.
Mathieu met Josefina Jiménez at the late spring end of the week mushroom occasion. Jiménez had moved to Oaxaca from old neighborhood Mexico City in 2002. The two common comparable interests; Jiménez had contemplated agronomy, and for near 10 years had been working with economical agribusiness projects in provincial cultivating networks in the Huasteca Potosina area of San Luis Potosí, the mountains of Guerrero and the bank of Chiapas. Mathieu and Jiménez became business, and afterward life accomplices in Benito Juárez.
Mathieu and Jiménez are focusing on three mushroom species in their grasp on classes; clam (seta), shitake and reishi. Their magic mushrooms canada one-day workshops are for shellfish mushrooms, and two-day centers for the last two types of parasite. With reishi, and less significantly shitake, we’re likewise showing a reasonable piece the restorative employments of mushrooms, so additional time is required, says Mathieu, and with clam mushrooms it is dominatingly [but not exclusively] a seminar on development.
