Event Details

Arlington Garden, Monday, July 8 @ 7:00pm Join us to discuss Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, one of the most popular Japanese mangas ever, at this rad bimonthly mycology community education group. This session will focus on how fungi (plus slime molds) inspired the central plot of remediating a damaged planet after an apocalypse. A cautionary tale of what at appears at first to be monstrous in fact turns out to be our best ally. An insightful commentary from the 1980’s on mycophobia and fear of the natural world. The last discussion was so captivating that participants barely scratched the surface of the manga. The group is holding an encore discussion this month to focus on the second half of the book. If you missed the last one, this is your chance to join a truly exciting conversation!
