    Publication Series: Book; Source: North American Agroforestry: An Intergrated Science and Practice, 2nd edition ; Abstract.

Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation covers incorporating mushrooms into your plantings in detail from a technical perspective as well as a laymen’s perspective. This book is straightforward, practical, insightful, and compelling. If you are at all curious about Biodynamics, give it a read. Biodynamics can seem difficult to get into. Steiner is so far out, and many books are etherial at the expense of being practical. This book is the middle path, I cant reccomend it enough. Go Biodynamics! Grow Biodynamic!
