Myco Wisdom culminates of 3+ years of study in the field of mycology; the science of fungi. Despite their fascinating otherworldly forms, fungi and mushrooms are poorly understood by the general population. Their vital role in the ecosystem deserves far more credit. They were pioneers to life on this planet. They are here for so much more than decomposition. Most living organisms rely on fungi in some crucial way. In terms of fungi/human collaboration, the potential is endless. Today, humans are teaming up with fungi to clean up pollution, heal disease, create alternative fibers and fuels, rebuild depleted soil and much more. It’s time for us to open our eyes, minds and hearts to the deeper story behind these fantastic creatures. Welcome to Myco Wisdom.
This is an art and education project to bring greater appreciation toward the fungal kingdom. Danielle has also delivered talks to accompany the project.
