I am excited to share a unique 7-day course I will be leading with soil/compost expert Nance Klehm this August in Chicago, IL.
This Master Class is ideal for anyone wishing to enrich their knowledge of soil science, fungal ecology, and advanced fungal cultivation practices. Participants may go on to incorporate this knowledge into careers in land management, habitat restoration, permaculture, and regenerative design (among various other fields). This class will also provide scientific and practical foundations in soil mycology for those who wish to pursue careers in soil science, mycology, plant pathology, or environmental studies.
Soil Fungi Science
Taxonomy, biology, and ecological modes of soil fungi
Identification of wild mushrooms, mycorrhizal fungi, lichens, and other soil fungi
Fungal influences on soil chemistry, structure, composition, and health
Field trips, forays, and more
Soil Fungi Cultivation & Application
Beneficial fungal-microbial relationships and soil inoculation strategies
Cultivating ecto and endomycorrhizae, biocrusts, and other soil fungi
Soil bioremediation strategies and associated chemistry
Soil fungi exudate analysis
Habitat restoration design and in situ implementation
Soil fungal pathogen identification and mitigation
Soil formation, types, and assessment protocols
Landscape reading and health analysis
Feel free to DM me with any questions. Otherwise, more details can be seen here.
