Listen: Future Primitive interview with Greg Marley

Joanna Harcourt-Smith of FuturePrimitive.org sat down with Greg Marley at the Connecting for Change conference this past weekend to discuss mushrooms and Greg’s book, Chanterelle Dreams and Amanita Nightmares. Check out the podcast below!

Wild mushrooms bring color, beauty and mystery into the forest and offer a way to connect with nature. They provide fresh, seasonal, gourmet-quality meals for foragers – and the occasional illness for those who mistakenly select a toxic variety. Medicinal mushrooms, meanwhile, offer a path to sustaining optimal health and hold the promise of immune-boosting healing for many illnesses. For the more adventurous, hallucinogenic mushrooms open and expand the mind, offering a gateway to mystical experience.

Mushrooms play a vital role in the health of our forests and are an indispensable link in the chain of forest ecology. The seasonal sale of wild mushrooms supports families in many rural developing or Third-World regions, and mushrooms are increasingly cultivated in tropical lands as a source of protein. Come celebrate the great mushrooms in our world with mycologist and author Greg A. Marley. He will share with you his passion for wild mushrooms, and offer advice for inviting mushrooms into your own lives and gardens.
