Paul Stamets thinks so and he’s done work to make this happen. The founder of FungiPerfecti and author many books on mushroom cultivation spoke at a TED talk recently that is worth taking a look.
We also wrote about how Paul has contributed (and donated in some cases) Pleurotus spawn as part of Dioxin cleanup in Ft Bragg, CA and cleaning up the SF Bay with hair and mushrooms.
