About Peter McCoy

Peter McCoy has been studying and working with fungi for twenty years, and teaching mushroom cultivation and applied mycology to people around the world for over a decade. His book, Radical Mycology: A Treatise on Seeing and Working With Fungi has been praised as the most important and comprehensive text on fungal ecology, mushroom cultivation, mycoremediation, and medicinal mushrooms written to date, and one of the most significant contributions to advancing mycology in the 21st century. Peter's work is widely regarded as pioneering in the topics of applied mycology and his voice is one of the foremost in the less-explored fields of fungal evolution, fungal communication, and the history of fungi in human cultures.

 In 2017, Peter founded MYCOLOGOS, the world's first mycology school, to share his extensive knowledge through online courses and in-person training programs. A lover of the outdoors, Peter's work is a direct response to a life spent foraging in the fungi-rich Pacific Northwest of the United States.
