Sølvi spilts her time between Myco and her role within agroforestry. She is keen to partner with fungi in the struggle for food sovereignty and land justice. Her favourite mushroom is Wine Cap (Stropharia Rugoso-annulate) because it’s a beautiful outdoor cultivation mushroom, but mainly because she loves the sound of the name.
Rob first developed an interest in mushrooms after noticing them on foraging walks. They work in communications and are passionate about helping others build strong connections to their food and the land it comes from. Their favourite mushroom is the Amethyst Deceiver (Laccaria laccata) because of its gorgeous colour.
SB is a qualified social worker with 10 years of experience working in health and social care. Their love for fungi developed over lockdown and has continued to grow. Their favourite mushroom is Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) because it’s beautiful and delicious.
Jesse is an ecologist and science educator with an interest in foraging, cooking, and eating all sorts of wild finds. Their favourite mushroom is the split gill mushroom (Schizophyllum commune) because it is pretty and has some cool genetics, but it's not worth eating.
Jon is an environmental toxicologist and self-taught mycologist. He has a keen interest in democratising access to scientific knowledge and applying it for the benefit of both humans and the environment. His favourite mushroom is birch polypore (Fomitopsis betulina) and other wood decaying fungi, due to their important role in cycling nutrients and promoting forest maturation.
