On Thursday August, 16 2012, At the Wilkinson Public Library in Telluride, Co, Ja Schindler of Fungi For the People will be giving a presentation on Fungi as Toxic Avengers! It will be a look into some of the historical uses of Mycoremediation already in practice, as well as some fresh perspectives on ways to work with Fungi at home and at work to forge a more Environmentally sound lifestyle. The focus is on broadening our outlook on Mycoremedition beyond Oil Spills and Plastic Eating Mushrooms, into combating the more hidden toxic outputs we create in our daily lives at home, and through the work we do.
Also! my friend Maya of Radical Mycology will be giving an enlightening presentation on Mycoremediation and the Radical Mycology movement at the Wilkinson Public Library on Friday, August 17th, not to be missed!

-Here in Eugene we can easily get supplies of fresh Douglas Fir woodchips, but most folks would do well (or better) with fresh woodchips from hardwood trees such as Alder, Maple, BIrch, Cottonwood (Poplar), and other non-aromatic hardwoods.
-If your woodchips are dry, you should soak them for 12-24 hours in well or rain water (we were using rain water here)
-One of the most important things about King Stropharia bed placement is that there will be good close shade to the bed, and that the wind is very low. This greenhouse blocks the wind, and the variety of plants grow here will cover close to the path, which had previously just soaked up much of the excess water is a muddy trench. We now enjoy a spongy elevated walking surface, which holds the excess water nicely
-King Stropharia beds have been know to attract bees and control nematodes (as well as provide delicious mushrooms!)
