Mushroom Caves of the Twin Cities by Greg Brick
This talk covers historical mushroom growing in the caves of the Twin Cities, especially the part of St Paul once known as “Mushroom Valley,” where more than 50 sandstone caves served as mushroom cellars for about a century, and the mushroom caves of Minneapolis. Social and technological factors involved with the rise and decline of the industry will be emphasized.
Greg Brick recently retired from his position at the Minnesota Dept of Natural Resources. He has been exploring caves in Minnesota and beyond for more than 30 years and has published several books on the subject. This presentation is based on his 2009 book, SUBTERRANEAN TWIN CITIES.
