Cleaning up environmental damage with mushrooms

We have been reading Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World by Paul Stamets. There’s a lot of good info on how to remediate pollution with mushroom cultures. I’ll be helping Travis set up a mushroom farm in the near future, but right now I’m preparing to test household sewage and organic garbage reduction using a mushroom bed.

The sciences of mycofiltration, mycoremediation, mycoforestry and Mycorestoration are part of an emerging field of study. While fungi promise to play an invaluable role in repairing many forms of environmental damage, the parameters, techniques and time lines for implementation are still in development.
