The Mycelium Running Seminar
About the Seminar
Paul Stamets and the staff of Fungi Perfecti are proud to present The Mycelium Running Seminar. Based on his most recent book Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World, this two-day introductory seminar will focus on the techniques used in Mycorestoration. Mycorestoration is the use of fungi to help repair or restore ecologically harmed and sensitive habitats. It encompasses the use of fungi for filtration of water (mycofiltration), the breakdown of toxic wastes (mycoremediation), empowering ecoforestry strategies (mycoforestry) and helping to influence and control pest insect populations (mycopesticides).
The seminar begins with an in-depth discussion of the mushroom life cycle and the role of mycelium as Nature’s Internet. Lecture topics will include mushrooms in their natural habitats, the use of mycorrhizal fungi in agriculture, and the use of medicinal mushrooms to heal people and planet. Participants will learn how to combine hands-on skills in low-tech mycelium production with a variety of Mycorestoration processes. (For those looking to obtain skills in sterile lab tissue culture, substrate preparation and inoculation techniques we recommend the Stamets Mushroom Cultivation Seminar.)
Food and Lodging are not included (continental breakfast, lunch, coffee and other beverages will be provided both days).
Seminar tuition: $1000.00. As space is extremely limited, early registration is strongly advised. Registration must be reconfirmed one month prior to seminar, and 50% ($500.00) of the tuition for the Mycelium Running Seminar is non-refundable.
