Join us for an introduction to the fascinating aspects of the kingdom of Fungi. These often overlooked life forms were the first to take hold on land. They are responsible for building and maintaining the soils that support all terrestrial life that has followed. We will survey their life cycles and build a basic understanding of cultivation processes as well as touch on the Nutritional and Medicinal Qualities of many mushroom species, another often undervalued aspect of Fungi. We will also touch on the powerful potential of fungi in improving the health of our planet's ecosystems through Bioremediation applications.
