Feeding the mycelium

NYMS is committed to cultivating a culture of inclusiveness by connecting and collaborating with a wide variety of organizations and communities of New York City. We are part of a broad mycelium of partner organizations focused on fungi, nature, family, learning and the protection of the natural world.

We are always interested in meeting potential partners and collaborators! Please reach out to community@newyorkmyc.org to start the conversation.

We believe that a diverse community not only benefits individuals, but also enhances the overall quality of the organization. NYMS is committed to creating an inclusive environment that welcomes people of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
