On the cover

For billions of years, mycelium has grown beneath our feet and served as an ecological connective tissue. A sprawling, infinitely renewable, interlaced web, it threads through soil and along river beds to break down organic matter and provide nutrients to plants and trees.

Mushrooms are the fruit of mycelium. Much like the branches and vines that grow apples or grapes, mycelium functions like these twisting, branching supports just below the surface.

“The Fantastic Fungi,” a 2019 award-winning documentary directed and filmed by cinematographer Louis Schwartzberg, explores a journey about the magical, mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth. Schwartzberg captured this journey through time-lapse photography and breathtaking imagery. The Fantastic Fungi is a conscious-shifting film about the mycelium network – an underground network that can heal and save our planet.
