A manual for the mycelial arts.


spore is intended to serve as a reference manual for the cultivation of mycelium and mushrooms. Contents will include substrate recipes, techniques and processes - with an emphasis on clear instructions, low-tech approaches and proven methodologies.

Further goals of the spore project are to allow for offline-first viewing of the contained information in multi-formats, such as PDF and a locally-deployed website. It is our sincere hope that this manual will serve numerous individuals, collectives and communities on their co-creative journeys with fungi.

spore has been formed through the collaborative efforts of Harmonic Mycology (Cape Town, South Africa) and the Kiez Pilz Kollektiv (Berlin, Germany).

#Technical Details

The contents of spore are written in Markdown and presented as a digital manual in the form of a website. This format allows ease of navigation and searchability. spore uses mdBook, a software utility written in the Rust programming language, to create the digital manual.
