We are thrilled to announce that Peter McCoy is joining us to help develop the Radical Herbology Track at the conference. Peter is the leading light behind starting the Radical Mycology movement that was birthed at a 2011 Radical Mycology conference held outside of Port Townsend, Washington. Five years later, Peter will be back in Port Townsend to help birth the Radical Herbology movement. Welcome Peter (and all the other radical herbologists who show up).
Peter McCoy speaks on behalf of the fungi, the most overlooked and misrepresented organisms in the web of life. A self-taught mycologist with over 14 years of accumulated study and experience, Peter is an original founder of Radical Mycology, a grassroots organization and open-source movement that teaches the skills needed to work with mushrooms and other fungi for personal, societal, and ecological resilience. Peter is the lead cultivation expert for the Amazon Mycorenewal Project and Open Source Ecology. Apart from his work with fungi, he is also a community organizer, street medic, zinester, artist, musician, lecturer, and teacher.
McCoy’s book Radical Mycology: A Treatise on Seeing and Working with Fungi has just been published and he will have a stack along to autograph.
Peter’s workshop can be on “Reflections on 5 years of Radical Mycology and what some lessons might be for Radical Herbology”.
