Let’s Become Fungal in David Horvitz’s 7th Avenue Garden

For her first visit to Los Angeles, Yasmine Ostendorf-Rodríguez joined Active Cultures, David Horvitz, shanhuan manton, and many friends, collaborators, and the public for a regenerative community barbeque in David’s 7th Avenue Garden. Together we cooked mushrooms in the ground oven, ate tacos, fed the garden with food scraps, and talked fungi and crows.
