A four day immersion into the art and science of mycoremediation, where we will turn theory into action. Led by the members of CoRenewal, we will go beyond cutting edge mycoremediation techniques, and study and practice what it takes for mycoremediation projects to become realities. See the full schedule
Topics will include: The Ecology of Bioremediation Innovative Fungal Cultivation Mycomimicry in theory and practice Mycoremediation and Environmental Justice Soil testing Project management Toxicology Mycorrhizal fungi as remediators Fungal enzyme assays Mycopermaculture Organics recycling with fungi Biofiltration Mycoremediation of Cigarette Butts Case studies: Oil Spill Clean-up in Ecuador And more!
We will also have break-out groups that will design potential future projects, and opportunities for engaging with existing projects.
This course is for bioremediators, mycologists, and ecologists who are ready to take their skills to a new level. If you’re new to the field of mycoremediation, you are welcome to apply but there will be required reading before the beginning of the course.
Early Bird Price (before May 30th): $400 Regular Price (after May 30th): $430 Registration includes all meals, on-site campsite, and educational materials. ***Note: this event will be almost entirely outdoors. Participants are expected to provide their own tent, sleeping bag, etc. We hope to provide hot outdoor showers, and make it as comfortable as possible, but if you think you'd be more comfortable in a bed and breakfast or a motel, there are many options in Wingdale.
