Why so obsessed with fungi?
These two videos are a great place to start, in fact I saw the first one while pregnant with my wee child and sent me into finding ways to connect to the mycelium underground in order to try to give my child a better world.
If you don't care to watch those, it all boils down to:
#1. The North Olympic Peninsula has the perfect sources for mushroom substrate and an ideal climate for growing mushrooms. We can transform "waste from local mills and agricultural businesses, and convert it into food medicine, and healthy mycorich soil to return to our farms and land. Port Angeles is on the brink of greatness, and Morel Compass has the potential to help inspire regenerative business models.
#2. Mushrooms and their webs underground have the ability provide healing to both us and our planet though offering medicinal properties, and being able to heal and digest toxic human problems on this planet like oil spills.
#3. Mushrooms can grow great in urban settings and small spaces.
#4. They are my child's favorite food.
