"Our view of man apart from nature, man exploiting nature has got to change, because that is the basis of the environmental crisis."
Lynn Margulis, microbiologist
Inspired by Gregory Herbert and Professor Katie J. Field’s new collaborative film Making-with, join us for a discussion about fungal networks, collaborative relationships, nutrient exchange, and how a symbiotic understanding of life could inspire a more caring, collaborative, and collective view of the world.
