Mycoremediation: Contructing Stropharia rugoso-annulata bunker spawn to bio-filter cattle waste on an EBMUD meadow.
The group is mixing and hydrating woodchips, and then adding the mushroom spawn.
The inoculated woodchips are stuffed into bags and sewn shut. We then pile up the bags in the low point of the meadow
where fecal runoff from the pastured cows collects.
Two months later and the bags are bursting with fungal life!
The bunker spawn is positioned to treat the drainage of the cattle field, preventing excess nutrients and bacteria from draining into the watershed, where it would disrupt fish spawning habitat and stream ecology.
