Hi there! We are Blue Oyster Cultivation, a family-owned mushroom farm in Ithaca, NY. Joseph Rizzo, the owner and head cultivator, is a former botany teacher and has been photographing, foraging and cultivating mushrooms for most of his adult life. As a gifted photographer, Joe has been inspired to publish a book about his favorite fungi.
Favorite Finger Lakes Fungi is a collection of Joe's favorite mushrooms found in the Finger Lakes in upstate New York. It is also a practical introduction to the magical world of mushroom hunting that you can take with you while hiking through the woods.
$1500 we will enable us to buy publishing software and print 100 copies of the book. Contributors will receive a copy of the book and other great rewards, many of which we produce right here on our 75-acre woodland farm.
Here are some of the great photos that will appear in the book:
