Peter has studied mycology for over 13 years with a focus on the uses of fungi for healing the minds, bodies, and ecosystems of the earth’s inhabitants. He is pursuing a degree in media and mycology from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA and is the author of the upcoming book Radical Mycology.
Peter joins us today to discuss mushroom cultivation and answer questions like. What is Radical Mycology? How we can learn about mycology without it being complicated? What is an overview of the mushroom cultivation process?
We continue with more in-depth questions such as, how much does it cost to grow mushrooms? What is one way to grow a ton of mushrooms for about one dollar? What are the nutritional and medicinal benefits of mushrooms? Are there other ways mushrooms can be used in survival strategies? How does mushroom cultivation fit into other aspects of food security such as growing fruits and vegetables?
