How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures

A mind-altering adventure through the world of fungi !

The more we learn about fungi, the less makes sense without them.

They can change our minds, heal our bodies and even help us avoid environmental disaster; they are metabolic masters, earth-makers and key players in most of nature's processes.

In Entangled Life, Merlin Sheldrake takes us on a mind-altering journey into their spectacular world, and reveals how these extraordinary organisms transform our understanding of our planet and life itself.

Rick Shepard, Retford Park's Head Gardener has reviewed Entangled Life for us.

Here are Rick's thoughts:

"Growing up on a farm in the WA Wheat-belt meant autumn rain and mushrooms! Picking mushies was so exciting- enough to eat our fill and surplus to share. Sometimes a lucky teacher was presented with a shoebox full- carefully selected and packed so no grit was in the gills. Little did I know that most of the fungus that made this tasty morsel was actually in the soil.

The thing about Merlin Sheldrake’s- book Entangled Life is that we find out these two things- fungi are exciting and we don’t know enough about them. Chapter after chapter tells us so many fascinating details about this little known and often misunderstood Kingdom. In a time when scientific pursuit is emerging from a period of being relegated by the climate sceptics and the anti vaxxers, it is a joy to see the science of fungi being celebrated in such a positive way."
