Hey yall,
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.

Topics Covered

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

  • Soil Science
  • 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.
