We started out with some of the toughest toxins to remove from the most difficult media to clean: soils. Then, after discovering that we could coax native soil fungi to awaken, we started thinking about other large, seemingly intractable problems could benefit from fungal interventions, and started a series of short courses to empower others to save their corners of the world with fungi too.
We empower citizen scientists and environmental professionals through our lectures, short courses, and interactive workshops. You’ll leave equipped with the skills and perspectives to start tapping into the power of fungi and create fungal solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental problems.

We collaborate with local nonprofits, municipalities, and brownfield redevelopers to create a low input clean-up approach centered on the fungi already adapted to site pollutants
We collaborate with municipalities and mines to harness fungal-plant collaborations that
reduce metals pollution
recover metals to industrial use
We collaborate with the Coalition of the Upper South Platte, similar nonprofits, and forest managers to avoid catastrophic wildfire by rotting excess fuels in place
We collaborate with CoRenewal and partners to evaluate different ways to harness innate fungal capacity to
build soil structure
degrade water-repellent particles
Explore the fantastic fungal tree of life
