It’s been a while since we’ve introduced the owners of BaltiSpore, so we figured we’d say hi and serve up a refresher for y’all!
First up we have Harriet, one of the founders of the business. Harriet has a background in agriculture, IPM, and greenhouse growing. Harriet first got into mushrooms when she realized all of the potential medicinal effects they hold. When they’re not growing mushrooms and running markets for BaltiSpore they can be found foraging, skating with their local roller derby league, or gardening.
Next up is Michael! Michael also got into mushrooms for their medicinal benefits and for their delicious taste as he’s an amazing cook. Michael is a jack of all trades and also owns his own HVAC company and plant store (s/o @fpcultivatedcreations). Michael is in charge of the lab operations for team BaltiSpore, and when he’s not there or running his other businesses he too can be found in the woods looking for new spore strains to culture, loving up on his pup, and spreading joy throughout Baltimore.
Last, but certainly not least is Chris! Chris hopped on board a few months after BaltiSpore was founded and swooped in like a saint to help with all things employee and business management focused. When he’s not busy keeping our heads on straight he can be found golfing, adventuring in Vermont, or making amazing music with @writehooked (if we do say so ourselves).
We want to give a huge thank you to the community for supporting us in our journey. Our first market season has been amazing, and we couldn’t do it without you!
