Our partners

As a non-profit society, the MushrooMania Festival Society is invested in partnering with community organizations that share common goals and visions.

We are proud to highlight our collaborative, community partners below.

As partners, we believe in synergy, that, collectively, our power for positive change is more than the sum of our organizations.

We share common values. As partners in organizing the annual MushrooMania Festival and related mushroom-centred events and activities throughout the year, we aim to honour indigenous culture and history, to promote forest and food sustainability, and to educate regarding safe and sustainable foraging and the health and mental health benefits of mushrooms.

As partners in organizing the annual MushrooMania Festival and related events, we are working together to build community. We aim to empower all people in our communities by sharing understandings, knowledge, expertise and skills in foraging, cultivating and using culinary, medicinal/functional, and psychedelic mushrooms.

As partners, we are, and will be, collaborating on supporting each other’s events throughout the year.

Together we are, and will be, working to support other Sunshine Coast organizations and individuals to grow everyone’s profile and successes.

If these values and visions resonate with you, consider becoming a partner of the MushrooMania Festival Society.

We’d love to hear what a collaboration looks like to you.
