WORKSHOP – Unruly Renegades

UNRULY RENEGADES – Exploring the Fungi of the Surf Coast Shire

Although little known, the roots of almost every plant in the Australian landscape are intimately entwined with fungi. Symbioses are the secret to success in our highly variable climate and nutrient-deficient soils.

Unruly fungal renegades contravene the frameworks we use to understand life. However, they might also inspire the innovative thinking needed to navigate an uncertain future.

Participants will learn the basic skills for identifying fungi and explore the many ways they help ecosystems function. Following an identification session around a specimen table we’ll head to the field for search for fungi.

Copies of Alison’s books, The Allure of Fungi , Underground Lovers and Wild Mushrooming will be available for purchase.
