The Permaculture Student

A resilient, abundant future starts with permaculture education.

Week 4 - Fungi

"Fungi are an essential component of all ecosystems, soil life and soils. They decompose organic matter and minerals in aerobic conditions, spread disease in oxygen depleted conditions and form a communication and nutrient exchange network in the soil that can go for miles. Fungi breaks down the lignin fibers of wood, and in turn, trees prefer to grow in a fungal dominated soil."
