With their cool caps and earthy vibes, these old souls are “all the rage” (pardon my slang). The coolest, quietest kids in school with the timeless style. Mushrooms are vintage, and vintage is cool, soulful, and earth conscious.
‘Shrooms are back!
On Thursday’s episode, Perpetual Notion Machine host Anita Nsubuga learns more about these cool fungi from two experts, Jerome and Meleesa. Jerome Segura, from Segura & Sons, is a mushroom farmer, regional scientist and economist. Meleesa Johnson is director of Marathon County’s Solid Waste Department.
Together, we learn: what mushrooms are. How do they relate to other fungi, or plants? Can mushrooms die? Just how important are these cool caps?
We also unearth the key mushrooms may hold in protecting our planet. Mushrooms seem to hold the keys to understanding how to decompose materials and learning how to conserve and preserve natural systems (e.g. wetlands and decomposition).
Are mushrooms really the key to the soil, too?
