Here in Britain tomorrow, Sunday 9 October, is UK Fungus Day. I’ll be joining my friends from the Glamorgan Fungus Group at the Wildlife Trust’s Parc Slip Nature Reserve for fungi fun and forays, and I hope you can all get out and enjoy some fungi spotting this Fungus Day. Check out the website for all the events that are happening throughout Britain.
‘Fungi are tremendously important to human society and the planet we live on. They provide fundamental products including foods, medicines, and enzymes important to industry. They are also the unsung heroes of nearly all terrestrial ecosystems, hidden from view but inseparable from the processes that sustain life on the planet.’ ~ Kew Royal Botanic Gardens website
