Fungi and the humans that choose to be in relationship with them are challenging anthropocentric narratives and opening up possibilities for integrative, regenerative living. What can the Fungal Realm teach us about interconnection, decomposing capitalism, and remediating our inner and outer landscapes? This workshop will give a theoretical and practical framework for working with our fungal allies, at home and in our communities. We will explore basic fungal biology and various mushroom cultivation techniques, as well as biofiltration and bioremediation with fungi. It will include real-world examples, namely CoRenewal’s efforts in Ecuador to clean up oil spills with bacteria and fungi, post-fire biofiltration with fungi, and heavy metal remediation on farms using Mycorrhizal Fungi.
