SEMINAR – A KINGDOM OF CONUNDRUMS
As part of the Moorabool Mushroom Festival Alison will be presenting a talk – A Kingdom of Conundrums
The Kingdom Fungi is a kingdom of conundrums. For some people, fungi are unnerving. Perplexing. Enigmatic. Being ephemeral, they rouse suspicions and associations with the supernatural. But mostly, fungi are overlooked. Forgotten. However, a growing public penchant for fungi suggests we are in something of a ‘fungal turn’. An emerging league of mycophiles is exploring into the many dimensions of the Kingdom Fungi, and unearthing not only their myriad benefits to humans, but how they hang the planet together.
In this talk Alison will delve into some of the curiosities of the Kingdom Fungi and share some of her experiences during the writing of her recent book, Underground Lovers: Encounters with Fungi.
