Join Joy Grissom, our Senior Gardener and co-founder of the Native Plant Rescue Squad
, to get a deeper understanding of the diverse role of fungus in the ecosystem. One of the greatest aspects of the natural world is understanding the interconnectedness of everything. When we walk through a forest, for example, we see dirt, plants, creeks, and critters (to name a few), however, there is a component in nature often unseen or overlooked. This component is fungi (aka mycorrhizae regarding its relationship with plant roots). Fungi help the balance of nature by decomposing plant waste and nutrient recycling in order to sustain new plant life.
