John Forsyth

John has been studying fungi for fun since his late teens after becoming aware of his local Psilocybe species Now, at age 25, he would now like to distribute and curate mycological knowledge to audiences of all types. Surely not an expert, he still believes mycology doesn’t have to be an inaccessible field, hence this blog.

Hyacinthe, known by friends simply as “H,” is a writer of poetry and prose. Hyacinthe first fell in love with mushrooms in 2013 after discovering a group of bright red Amanita behind their apartment. Hyacinthe is interested in the ways that fungi can benefit both a practice and theory for a better world.


This blog will never be adequate in determining if what you found in the wild is fit to be eaten. Never eat mushrooms that you haven't identified properly.
