Fungi and plants have been allies for millions of years! Learn about the fascinating relationship between these organisms, and how to harness this ancient symbiosis to enrich green landscapes at any scale. We will discuss the use of mycorrhizal fungi, gardening with edible mushrooms, and how fungal sugars may benefit bees.

Ruth Idunn (Ruthie) specializes in mycorrhizae and beneficial fungi for the offices of Fungi Perfecti. Her educational focus in college was on Environmental Sciences and her love of the natural world and passion for gardening has led her down the path of sustainable agriculture and mycology. Ruthie lives in Olympia, WA and spends her free-time hiking/backpacking, photographing fungi in the old growth forests, gardening, kayaking, and longboarding around town with her husky, Zeus.

Fungi Perfecti, LLC is a family-owned business out of Olympia dedicated to promoting the cultivation of high-quality gourmet and medicinal mushrooms. In business since 1980, we have been instrumental in developing new technologies and markets for gourmet mushrooms throughout the world. Through our in-depth classes and information networks, we encourage the establishment of a constellation of independent, organically minded growers whose collective consciousness will define this emerging industry well into the next century. We hope you will join us in this endeavor. The future is ours.

Our Mission: To explore, study, preserve and spread knowledge about the use of fungi for helping people and planet.
