Those interested in taking part in the beginning of the week portion of the Summit that please visit http://www.newmoonmycologysummit.org/advanced-mycorenewal-course.html
For the last 10 years, CoRenewal has conducted research and implemented bioremediation methods in the abandoned oil pits of Ecuador. In collaboration with local organizations, our team of experts examine the efficacy of various techniques for using fungi, bacteria and plants to clean up contaminated soil and water. We are so grateful they will be sharing and opening the platform for dedicated Earth healers to learn the skills needed to perform a wide range of remediative techniques.
We open our weeks events with a intimate collection of people-

This is a four day immersion into the art and science of mycoremediation, where we will turn theory into action. We will go beyond cutting edge mycoremediation techniques, and study and practice what it takes for mycoremediation projects to become realities.
Topics will include:
Sustainable fungal cultivation methods
Mycomimicry in theory and practice
Mycoremediation and environmental justice
Mycorrhizal fungi as remediators
Fungal enzyme assays
Organics recycling with fungi
We will also have break-out groups that will design potential future projects, and opportunities for engaging with existing projects.
This course is for bioremediators, mycologists, and ecologists who are ready to take their skills to a new level. If you’re new to the field of mycoremediation, you are welcome to apply but there will be required reading before the beginning of the course.
