Our knowledge of how habitat restoration and regenerative agriculture work – how they proceed or falter – is being renovated as we speak.
A new sense of how symbiotic mycorrhizae shape plant establishment and succession has been slowly emerging over the last quarter century.
In his new book, Mycorrhizal Planet, Michael Phillips weaves his own web of astounding connections regarding “what holds this earth together.” Not since Paul Stamets’ pioneering inquiry, Mycelium Running, have we been blessed by such a synthesis that tells how symbiotic fungi are the true and most trustworthy stewards of this planet.
With his usual genius of explaining complex science in ways farmers and restorationists themselves can grasp, Phillips reminds us that those in Washington DC have never really “run this country,” our fungal allies have.
This is the book you’ll need to begin your own forest garden in 2017.
