Alison Pouliot – Licking Honie Among Thornes, Creswick Vic

May 1 @ 2:15 pm - 2:30 pm
Senior Citizens Centre, Water Street
Creswick, Vic Australia

In 1597, John Gerard wrote of fungi in his Herball: ‘fewer of them are good to be eaten; and most of them do suffocate and strangle the eater. Therefore I give my simple advice … to beware of licking honie among thornes.’ Today we know that most fungi don’t suffocate or strangle the eater, nor cause problems in gardens. Although fungi are often maligned by gardeners, clandestine fungal networks beneath the soil provide supportive architecture and increase resistance to drought…

Alison Pouliot – Underground Lovers, Warrandyte Vic

May 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Grand Hotel River View Room Warrandyte, Vic Australia

Seminar: Exploring the clandestine relationships between trees and fungi Although little known, the roots of almost every tree in the Australian landscape are intimately entwined with fungi. These relationships extend beyond trees and include every orchid and most shrubs and grasses. These mutually beneficial relationships are the secret to their success in our highly variable climate and nutrient-deficient soils. Fungi not only help plants access water and nutrients, but also increase their resistance to drought and disease. Fungi build architecture…

Alison Pouliot – Forests of fungi workshop, Apollo Bay Vic

May 9 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Apollo Bay Vic Australia

Deep in the Otways forests, strange things transpire in fungal realms. Ghost fungi glow an eerie green. Other fungi ensnare creatures in the subterrains. And there are those that send local mammals into a frantic feeding frenzy. The fungi of the diverse Otways Forests ecosystems are little known. Only very scant and mostly anecdotal records exist. Fungi are an important part of these forests in creating and stabilising soils, nourishing and interconnecting plants, as a food supply for animals, recycling…
