Whether on a pizza or on a pile of soil, you can’t deny the allure that mushrooms have on people.
But a new project in central Wisconsin may find that mushrooms are more than just a tasty food. They could be helping to clean contaminated soil. As Wisconsin Public Radio reports, the project seeks to understand the potential applications of “mycromediation.”
WORT Assistant News Director and overall fun-guy Nate Wegehaupt spoke with Meleesa Johnson, Director of the Marathon County Solid Waste Department coordinator of the project.
