Peter and Willoughby of the Radical Mycology crew were recently interviewed on WTUL in New Orleans to talk about fungi and the 2014 Radical Mycology Tour. Check out the interview here.
Geoffroy Renaud-Grignon, founder of Champignons Maison and Mycélium Rémedium in Montreal, was recently featured in a great radio-essay by Alexandre Touchette, called Cultiver des Champignons en Ville. In the 15 minute piece, Geoffroy talks about his small business that produces spawn and oyster kits on salvaged coffee grounds as well as his work in mycoremediation of post-industrial sites with the goal of creating green spaces for urban gardening. Geoffroy will serve as translator for the upcoming Radical Mycology workshops to be held in Montreal, on September 18, as a part of the Radical Mycology tour.
The Radical Mycology Collective is spreading its spores on a tour across North America!
This fall, Radical Mycology is going on a North American tour to promote the upcoming book Radical Mycology, the third Radical Mycology Convergence, and to hold presentations and workshops on the skills and theories behind the Radical Mycology movement.
The Radical Mycology tour will share a unique approach to understanding the important role that fungi play in positive personal, societal and ecological transformations. Mushrooms and other fungi can help address many pressing global issues and as awareness of fungi grows, people around the world are seeking accessible knowledge on how to work with these incredible organisms. The 2014 Radical Mycology tour will present numerous mycological skills for people of all backgrounds in a practical and accessible way. This tour will be the next major fruiting body for the Radical Mycology project as we continue to build a stronger network of like-minded mycophiles, activists, and citizen scientists. We hope you can join us!
Peter McCoy of Radical Mycology was recently featured in a short documentary on the current rise in mycological culture in the west. As it happens, this film, just like the Radical Mycology Book, was also funded by a crowdfunding campaign. Oh, what a wonderful mycelial internet(work).

The Amazon Mycorenewal Project launches its Indiegogo fundraiser today! This unique project will develop an low-cost, open-source biofiltration system that uses fungi, plants, bacteria, and biochar to remediate water systems of industrial pollutants like petroleum. AMP is the only example of a large-scale, real-world myco and bio remediation project in the world! This campaign will help develop grassroots bioremedition into a truly viable technology.
