Radical Mycology: Spawning Mycelial Networks

Published Robbie - Fri, 08/01/2014 - 12:38pm

This fall, Radical Mycology is  on a North American tour to promote the upcoming book Radical Mycology, the third Radical Mycology Convergence, and to hold presentations and workshops on the skills and theories behind the Radical Mycology movement.

The Radical Mycology tour shares a unique approach to understanding the important role that fungi play in positive personal, societal and ecological transformations. Mushrooms and other fungi can help address many pressing global issues and as awareness of fungi grows, people around the world are seeking accessible knowledge on how to work with these incredible organisms. The 2014 Radical Mycology tour presents numerous mycological skills for people of all backgrounds in a practical and accessible way. Sharing a range of workshops and resources on the value of fungi, this tour will build a stronger and more diverse mycelial network of like-minded mushroom lovers, activists, and citizen scientists.

Radical Mycology: Spawning Mycelial Networks
A 2-hour presentation on the uses of fungi for personal, societal, and ecological healing. Concepts of fungal ecology and mushroom cultivation are tied with the means for creating resilient lifestyles and communities to present a novel worldview based on the cooperative relationships found throughout the fungal kingdom.
