Mycoremediation Handbook: A Grassroots Guide to Growing Mushrooms and Cleaning up Toxic Waste With Fungi

We are reaching a point of no return with our accumulation of toxic waste on Planet Earth. One solution that we have is mycoremediation- the remediation of toxic waste with fungi.

Alex Dorr, a graduate of Hampshire College with a BA studying Mycology with a focus on Mycoremediation wrote this book as a beginning exploration to how to clean up toxic waste with fungi and create an allyship with this powerful organism. From cleaning up oil spills, to pesticides, to cigarette butts. From brownfield sites to super fund sites to your own backyard. Learn how to cultivate mushrooms and prepare your own medicine for your body and the body of the earth. This is a wake up call and a guidebook giving practical solutions on healing yourself, your community, and the world we live in. We have a duty to protect the biodiversity of life on this planet. We are stewards of this earth, it’s time to step up and use the tools mother nature provides. Welcome to a training of mycoremediation. Prepare to clean up our mess.
