Fungi are fascinating organisms. They can grow on almost anything and decompose all kinds of materials into soil and other useful stuff. Folks are finding more and more uses for these sometimes-tasty-or-sometimes-poisonous little suckers. So here are a just few fun links on fungi.

- If you want to learn how to grow your own fungus, there are a bunch of seminars waiting for you. You'll have to wait until 2012 for an opening, though. [url]
