Peter McCoy speaks on behalf of the fungi, the most overlooked and misrepresented organisms in the web of life. A self-taught mycologist with 16 years of accumulated study and experience, Peter is an original founder of Radical Mycology, a grassroots organization and movement that teaches the many ways to work with mushrooms and other fungi for personal, societal, and ecological resilience. Peter is the lead cultivation expert for the Amazon Mycorenewal Project and the mycology advisor to Open Source Ecology and Permaculture Magazine North America, as well as a regular guest on the Permaculture Voices Podcast. Apart from his work with fungi, he is also a community organizer, artist, musician, lecturer, and teacher.

In 2016, Peter released Radical Mycology: A Treatise on Seeing & Working With Fungi, a 650-page book on accessible mycology, mushroom cultivation, mycoremediation, and more. The book has since been hailed as one of the most accessible texts on the science and art of mycology, offering unique, thorough, and cutting-edge insights into the rapidly evolving field along with practical applications to complement these revelations.

Peter’s work has been featured in various news and media outlets around the world such as Salon, GOOD.is, Grist, Vice’s Motherboard, and The Survival Podcast. And his unique approach to teaching accessible mycology has brought him to present at The Permaculture Voices Conference, The Village Building Convergence, The Telluride Mushroom Festival, The Breitenbush Herbal Conference, The National Brownfield’s Conference, and The North American Mycological Association, as well as for countless community groups across North America.

From his mushroom homestead in Portland, OR, Peter’s daily practice centers on cultivating, researching, and foraging for new intersections between healthy human and fungal relations.

BUT! The first time I cracked it was literal. This book is probably the last mushroom book I'll buy - Peter McCoy knows his fungi, but I'm going to have to carry it around in a bag and read it only at a table. It's perfect-bound and couldn't be more imperfectly so - it's no longer a book, but a loose collection of 650 pages with a cardstock cover. A book this size (and price) should have a sewn binding. I'm disappointed the quality of the contents isn't reflected in the object itself.
