In the Lounge:
Fungi are the drivers of whole ecological webs. They are everywhere around us, filling all plants and ensuring healthy succession. And yet, fungi remain the most overlooked and misunderstood branch on the Tree of Life. In this presentation Peter will cover all the reasons that fungi should no longer be ignored but embraced for the many gifts they offer. Specific topics include fungal ecology, cultivation, cultural importance, mycopermaculture, and mycoremediation.
Peter McCoy is a co-founder of Radical Mycology, a grassroots organization teaching the skills for working with fungi for personal, societal, and ecological resilience.
