Connecting people who wish to harness the power of Fungi to address the most pressing issues of our time.

mushroom applications.

Fungi, mushrooms and mycelium, are nature's innovators.

Their unique ability to break down complex compounds and transform them into valuable resources make them powerful tools which can help us reduce plastic waste, CO2 emissions, unsustainable animal-based food production, soil and water pollution.

Fungi have been used for centuries to make our food more nutrient rich and flavourful. From meatless burger patties, to organic mushroom milk, a new food revolution is now underway.



Ideas gained from looking at an organism artistically can enable us to think “outside the box”. Art triggers in us emotions which can lead to action and collaboration, both vital to the exploration of fungi.

Recent community highlights covering mushroom and mycelium based innovation

in food, design, biomaterials, environmental remediation and more.



Fungi are the architects of the natural world, integral to all life.

They sustain critical ecosystems, recycling nutrients and connecting plants across vast areas. They're also the enablers of many staples of modern life, such as wine, chocolate, bread, detergent and penicillin.


Today, in the face of urgent ecological, societal and spiritual crises, fungi are being engineered to grow meat alternatives, create new sources of medicine, produce sustainable biomaterials, remediate the environment and even expand our collective consciousness.

As a fungi innovation network, MycoStories showcases and connects citizen scientists, mycologists, entrepreneurs and investors around the world who wish to harness the power of mushrooms and mycelium to address the most pressing issues of our time.
