National Mushroom Day is a celebration of all things fungi, and we’re here with three great resources to learn more!
Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World
Written by a mushroom expert who discovered that enzymes and acids in the fine mycelium filaments that cover vast areas of land can actually break down many pollutants, plant and animal debris as well as recycle carbon, nitrogen and other essential elements back into the soil. In addition to a manual for healing the earth, Mycelium Running, offers instruction on the art of mushroom cultivation and tips for choosing fungi for various purposes.
In Mycorrhizal Planet, Phillips explores the complex science of the world beneath our feet in layman’s terms – offering insight into how to make plants and their fungal partners prosper. Beyond growers, this book will resonate with anyone who is fascinated with the unseen workings of nature and concerned about maintaining and restoring the health of our soils, our climate, and the quality of life on Earth for generations to come.
Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation
More than a cultivation guide, Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation is about healing the people and the planet, one mushroom and one cultivator at a time, reversing destructive cycles into creative forces. Cotter urges readers to think with an opportunistic yet minimalistic approach, much like a mushroom, taking what it needs to survive and then returning resources to its ecosystem.
