We are happy to have a visit from Leif Olson to Central Texas this April. Check out one of two events he's sharing with us! This one is FREE to all, donations accepted.

Fungi in Environmental Restoration and Remediation: Applications and Practical Concerns

From breaking down toxic contaminants to enhancing plant immune systems to making soil richer and more accommodating for life, fungi play many crucial roles in helping the landscape.

How can we as citizens take this knowledge and put it into practice to help the ecosystems near and dear to us?

Learn about the scientific concepts at play in “Mycoremediation”, how and why fungi heal our environment, and how to practically incorporate fungi into land management. Considerations will be made towards partnering with institutions, understanding the scientific validity of projects and having realistic expectations for implementing a promising but unproven science.

There’s so much more to fungi than mushrooms, so come get hyphae! Look out for more details on his workshop: Gardening with Fungi on April 20th.
