    Mushrooms can save the world
    Project: What happened to nature?

    Paul Stamets, American mycologist & author, is a passionate believer that mushrooms/funghi, can indeed save the world. One such brilliant way he has demonstrated this is through Mycoremediation, which is a form of bioremediation that can turn soil which has been contaminated by oil, into an "oasis... teeming with life", in a matter of weeks.

    This is yet another example that Nature already contains the most elegant processes & techniques for us to learn from. Aiding in our more complete & natural integration with Gaia. It's all there for us... and thankfully people like Paul are looking with insatiable curiousity.

    Watch as Paul demonstrates Mycoremediation:

    Janine Benyus — "Nature runs on sunlight, uses only the energy it needs, fits form to function, recycles everything, rewards cooperation, banks on diversity, demands local expertise, curbs excesses from within, taps the power of limits."
