As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Mycelium Running by Paul Stamets
This book came out in 2005, and the subtitle is How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World
In this book, Paul shares the power of mushrooms and how growing mushrooms is the best way to save the environment.
As Paul explains,
“The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called “mycelium”--the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil.”
Paul is passionate about using mycelium to tackle everything from toxic wastes and pollutants, silt in streambeds, pathogens in watersheds, pest control, and general forest and garden health.
This book is 356 pages of myco-restoration - using mycelium and mushrooms for restoration and environmental health.
