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.
