Mexico has a great tradition and knowledge about the consumption of Edible Wild Mushrooms (Hongos Silvestres Comestibles). With 300 known species, it has the second greatest diversity of edible mushrooms in the world!

The collection of these fungi is a sustainable activity that helps to preserve the forests and sustain indigenous communities. Arif Towns Alonso, owner and founder of Simbiosis in San Miguel de Allende Mexico, takes us on a journey from preHispanic times to the present, as we explore the uses and customs of these mushrooms by Mexican indigenous communities, as both food and medicine.
