Fungi are the great healers of Earth, upholding an array of unique ecological roles that no bacteria, plant, or animal can match. In this presentation, Peter will show how these natural functions of fungi can be intentionally worked with by humans in a variety of ways to mitigate pollution, restore degraded lands, build soil, strengthen ecosystems, and create cleaner water. From home-scale techniques that anyone can practice, to insights into the tools behind broadscale remediation efforts, this talk will provide you with a solid foundation in the theory and methods behind the rapidly evolving and exciting field of mycoremediation.
