This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Woodland Care.

In this Badge Bit, you will enhance garden beds with mycelium! A simple way to encourage the growth of mycelium is to just keep adding organic matter to the soil.

Permaculture Basics: Mycelium


For more information on mycelium:
Improving soil fertility with fungi
Mycelium and the Soil

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
     o enhance garden beds with mycelium
     o photo evidence that it helped in 3 scenarios

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide proof of the following as pictures of a video (<2 mins)::
     o show the inoculant(s) added, medium(s)/substrate(s) added, or altered condition(s) being done to the garden beds to facilitation mycelium growth
     o describe what the inoculant/substrate/altered condition is and how that might encourage mycelium growth
     o garden beds before enhancing with mycelium
     o action shot of making that enhancement
     o proof that the at least 3 garden beds have improved and that mycelium is growing there
