BAAM has partnered with Counter Culture Labs, an open source biology laboratory housed inside of the Omni Commons, located in north Oakland, Ca. We are using the laboratory to create a Culture Library: a collection of fungal cultures for use in our projects, as well as a fungal resource for the community of urban farmers, homesteaders, bio-remediaters, and other biophilic persons.

The mushroom lab is here for experiments. We trial different cultures for their ability to break down waste and contaminations. We are interested in culturing local and native fungi, as well as exotic interesting species. We are gathering selected cultivars for edibility and medicine, and trying to match cultures to our local conditions for best production.
