The Varieties of the Mycological Experience with Author Doug Bierend
Thursday, July 15, 7 pm via Zoom
Around the country, growing numbers of people are discovering the many wonders & possibilities posed by fungi. But beyond providing food, medicine, sustainable materials, innovative remediation techniques & enchanted forest outings, the under-examined kingdom of fungi also offer unexpected opportunities to reconsider how we connect with nature & with one another. Get introduced to a diverse community of citizen scientists, basement cultivators, independent entrepreneurs, communitarian naturalists, artists, tinkerers & others who are working to foster fungal fellowship & hopes for a more reciprocal, sustainable world.
