Here is a video of Peter McCoy from Radical Mycology talking about how he trained fungi to digest used cigarette filters. Seems like a very cool way to partner with fungi to help start remediating our environment.



Peter is one of the core educators for the Ecological Living Summit this summer in Montana. He is going to be teaching a variety of workshops including:

- Medicinal and Ethno-Mycology
- Cheap Spawn Production for Mushroom Cultivation
- Aseptic Lab Work
- Myco-Permaculture
- Mushroom Identification
- Mycorrhizal Fungi
- Myco-Remediation

Well, kinda speechless. I guess Paul Stamets was correct when he said "Mushrooms can save the world."
 
Don't listen to Steve. Just read this tiny ad:
