And now for something completely different


A member of the Radical Mycology collective leads a foray in a Santa Cruz forest. November, 2014.

In Ocotober 2014, after much deliberation, I changed my topic from urban agriculture to amateur mycology — specifically, a politicized form concerned with citizen science and myco-remediation that has been referred to as “radical mycology.” The idea of a “radical” mycology comes from a zine of the same name published in 2010 by the Radical Mycology collective. I continue to focus on similar questions related to American countercultural lineages, ecology, secularity, and spirituality, as refracted through these particular practices and concerns.
