Have you ever seen these mushrooms around your city???
Well, when I moved to Orlando I saw them everywhere and wondered….”What is UP with these paper bag mushrooms?” “What does it MEAN?” “WHO is behind this?” Years and years later, I randomly met a guy named Doug Rhodehamel through my friend Nicolle one night at our favorite local hangout and that’s when the mystery was solved. Doug is a very funny and sweet artist, that on that night, gave an inebriated Jenna & Nicolle a ride home. He created The Spore Project which is an ongoing project promoting awareness of creativity and art education. Some schools and every day people across the country have adopted this project. They have planted these mushrooms along highways, in fields, and in their yards. Actually, he has mushrooms planted on every continent, so join the fun and spread the word, Yo! Click HERE to learn how to make your own mushrooms.
Currently, the green states have had mushroom plantings. If you live in one of those other states and wish to participate in The Spore Project…make some mushrooms, take a photo and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll put you on the map!
Help Doug plant
Happy mushroom making! Xoxo, Jenna.
