Radical Mycology

I'm pleased to report that Radical Mycology's Indiegogo campaign has reached it's goal and more.  Radical Mycology is a volunteer organization whose mission is to educate the world about all things fungi.  If you aren't familiar with the group, check them out here.  

Excerpt from the Radical Mycology website:

What is Radical Mycology?

Radical Mycology is a movement and social philosophy based on accessibly teaching the importance of mushrooms and other fungi for personal, societal, and ecological health. Radical Mycology differs from classical mycology in that classical mycology generally focuses on taxonomy, identification, mycophagy (eating mushrooms), and the more personal benefits of working with fungi while Radical Mycology is about using fungi for the benefit of larger communities and the world.

As a concept, Radical Mycology is based on the belief that the lifecycles of fungi and their interactions in nature serve as powerful learning tools for how humans can best relate to each other and steward the world they live in.

As an organization, the Radical Mycology project organizes the Radical Mycology Convergences and disseminates free literature and other media on the uses of fungi for food sovereignty, medicine creation, ecological restoration, mycopermaculture, community building, and creating resilient/sustainable lifestyles. The Radical Mycology project started in 2006.

 

On behalf of myself and everyone with a vested interest in fungi (which is pretty much everyone, whether they know it or not) I would like to thank all 291 of you who participated in funding the Radical Mycology Book.  I'm so happy that all of the mycophiles out there have come together to make this happen, now we will all have the opportunity to benefit from this new resource!

Thanks again and keep up the good work!
