This 2 hour presentation explores the numerous ways that humans can learn to ally with the fungal kingdom fungi for personal, societal, and ecological health. In this talk, Peter McCoy, co-founder of the Radical Mycology project, weaves aspects of fungal ecology, ethnomycology, mushroom cultivation, and mycoremediation with the topics of food sovereignty, water rights, community organizing, and social justice work to construct a novel worldview based on the cooperative and symbiotic relationships found throughout the fungal kingdom. Hands-on: 2) Pearl Oyster Cardboard and coffee digester. Starting with a few small buckets Peter will demonstrate how the campus can use coffee and cardboard waste products to produce large quantities of mushrooms and mycelium. This bulk mycelium (called "spawn"), once established, can be used in numerous applications for food and medicine creation as well as soil detoxification. http://www.facebook.com/events/372632956213153/
