MycoSymbiotics is a Decentralized Citizen Research Effort put on by William Padilla-Brown. Mycosymbiotics has its Head Research Facility based in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. We are a team of dedicated environmental regeneration enthusiasts, on a mission to better our local Ecology and Community though the use of Science!
Like the mycelial network, we branch out radically covering all aspects of Symbiotic biological/sociological function.Since 2015, MycoSymbiotics has kept its focus on collecting native Pennsylvania strains of gourmet and medicinal mushrooms from the wild to study in controlled environments. Since summer 2021, MycoSymbiotics has also made its Algal Culture Collection available. MycoSymbiotics hosts and annual festival the first weekend of August every year focused on increasing the ecological literacy of the attendees and the surrounding communities. Breaking down the name Myco-Fungi and Symbiotic- a close cooperative or interdependent relationship, we strive to develop mutually beneficial relationships with those around us and those we work with. In the big, wild world there are a lot of important players that get overlooked. Our team is focused on putting the unnoticed players into the spotlight by researching their potentials for Ecological Regeneration.
