Fungi are giving a big fuck you to avocados. Their rep is really beginning to, well, mushroom. Sunday sees the launch of a new event – Fungi Fest – where foragers, activists and scientists will all be evangelising about their cultural importance. Stalls will be flogging fresh fungi and growing kits to help visitors continue a ‘mycelial journey’. Meanwhile, Somerset House recently announced plans for a brilliantly bizarre-sounding 2020 exhibition called ‘Mushroom: The Art, Design and Future of Fungi’. Slightly terrified of the dawn of the shroom? We’re here if you need morel support.
