Human activities especially during recent centuries have taken a devastating toll on our natural environments. It is high time we take action and ally with other organisms to reverse the damage we have caused. The Pilzbüssli visits communities and collaborates with humans and a variety of fungal species in Mycological Interventions. This nomadic mycological laboratory is designed to teach mushroom cultivation to people of all demographics, turning them into mycophiles. By co-designing projects such as sustainable mushroom gardens or remediation projects in damaged environments, communities are empowered in working with our powerful fungal allies.
