Radical Mycology Convergence:  Info on helping with the planning stages at: http://radicalmycology.wordpress.com/radical-mycology-convergence-2... .

Request to be put on their mailing list.  I heard great reports from last years convergence in Skagit county – which was held same weekend as Singing Alive gathering in September - this year they may aim for Oct/Nov dates, and a more southern location.

Congratulations to Scott McClendon on completing the Mycorestoration Seminar at Fungi Perfecti this weekend. Looking forward to the knowledge you share with T.W. on restoring damaged habitats with mycelium.

I'm finding lots of Oyster mushrooms in the woods. Mostly on dead Alders.

Before this article I wasn't aware that mushrooms can eat radiation, and that people can then eat those mushrooms. Check it out! 6 Ways Nature Cleans Up Our Messes Better than We Do
