BAAM formed in 2011, with the goal of helping communities and the environment through mycoremediation. With research, community-partnership, and a lot of enthusiasm, we’re building solutions to heal the environment and our fractured social systems.

Furthering Our Mission
Our organization is developing new cultivation techniques, and novel applications for fungi. Our fieldwork also involves searching for new and application-specific fungal species. Each year our collective knowledge improves, and our culture library grows.
We’re contributing to scientific understanding through research projects and data submissions to public repositories. Our techniques span field observations to advanced labwork and DNA sequencing. We’ve partnered with public institutions and are conducting a number of environmental studies through these partnerships.
BAAM members share a passion for foraging wild mushrooms for food, medicinal purposes, and inspiration. We advocate the utility of fungi, and their myriad valuable products– gourmet food, pharmaceutical compounds, and industrially important chemicals and enzymes. We also seek to better understand the invaluable ecological roles that fungi play– everything from decomposing waste and building soil to supporting plant life and sequestering carbon.
