FungI used for Land Regeneration

Paul Stamets: 6 ways mushrooms can save the world

In his presentation Paul talks about using mycelium in the process of cleansing oil and diesel saturated soil.

Pay close attention to the pictures 8 minutes into the video, Paul shows the progress after 8 weeks of oyster mushrooms thriving in diesel saturated soil.  His results are really incredible.

Paul has also done research on medicinal benifits of fungi, and also using fungi as natural pesticides.

It is so exciting to see natural methods of habitat restoration.  While the rest of the world is screaming doom and gloom, there are people observing the ways nature repairs landscape and learning from them.  This is how we will continue to succesfully inhabit the world for generations.
