Radical Mycology
Peter McCoy is a founder and author of Radical Mycology, a grassroots organization and movement that teaches the means to easily work with mushrooms and other fungi for personal, societal, and ecological resilience. For the last 8 years, Radical Mycology has provided free resources and held internationally attended conferences that share the science of mycology and art mushroom cultivation in a way that is open-source, practical, and relevant in the context of modern life. Peter's work is guided by his vision of a more myco-literate culture where the existing knowledge gap around the fungal kingdom has been closed and the beauty and gifts of these incredible organisms has been fully embraced. Peter believes mycology should be accessible for all lifestyles and life cycles and not shrouded in mystery, as it has been for so long.
