Fungi play a vital role in our environment, holding special relationships within the soil web. By studying Mycoremediation, the practice of using specific fungal strains to re-mediate contaminated or polluted soils, we can help bring "dead" soils back to life.

Tess Burzynski is the founder at Fungi Freights Urban Lab and  Studio. A research scientist and microbiologist she continues exploring the potential of Mycoremediation in Detroit. 

 

Her love of Fungi began in her early years exploring the outdoors. She is a member of the Michigan Mushroom Hunters Club and the North American Mycological Association. Throughout her studies she has learned the role mycelium plays in the environment and how beneficial, tenacious and magical it truly is. Through Fungi Freights, her goal is to educate Detroit and its surrounding neighbors about the benefits fungi have on health, food security, and the environment.
