Diverse Perspectives – Exploring Fungi
May 26, 2022 –
Come and experience a fascinating insight into the world of fungi!
The lecture series is targeted at permaculture practitioners and closely aligned practitioners from the fields of regenerative agriculture (including organics and biodynamics), native bush rehabilitation, community gardeners, home gardeners, naturalists and environmentalist activism.
As permaculturalists we are interested in understanding natural patterns and the elements within a living system. It helps us to improve our designs and create new techniques. People are constantly learning and unearthing new/hidden connections. Our perception of the world and how we make sense of it is in flux. This is a space of possibilities. We asked our speakers: How do you see the world? What are your dreams for the future? What excites you about what you do? What motivates you? What have you learned? What mistakes have you made along the way? Is the foundational knowledge of your field shifting? Are assumptions, that have directed the questions asked, being brought to light? What are the new questions being asked?
The event will be catered and includes time for questions and socialising afterwards. Please feel free to bring along a plate to share.
The speaker, Roz Hart, is working with Dr Sapphire McMullan-Fisher to produce a a practical guide for land managers, a handbook on the use of fungi in conservation and revegetation in Australian landscapes. They are continuing to raise funds to have professional substantive editing to bring the 28 authors ‘voices’, contributing to the book, into harmony. Contributing mycologists sure know their Australian fungi but they want this knowledge to be easily understood by everyone.
All profits from this event will be donated to Fungi for land to help get the book published.
