13 Apr Taye Bright
Taye is an applied mycologist, ecological animist, educator, artist, writer and medicine-maker orienting her life’s work around how to be in healing, reciprocal relationship with our respective ecologies and create life-ways in alignment with bioregional intelligence.
She holds a degree in Biology, has certifications in Permaculture Design and Ecosystem Restoration Design, and is a certified California Naturalist. She teaches fungi-focused classes/workshops and guides relational mushroom walks all around Northern-central California with the intention of providing accessible and embodied scientific education outside of conventional academia. She is the owner and founder of Symbiiotica, a small business offering mycological consultations, eccentric art, nature-inspired poetry and wildcrafted fungal/botanical medicines. She has over 5 years of experience cultivating mushrooms and is a co-owner and operator of Moon Fruit Mushroom Farm; an outdoor, log-based mushroom farm in the forests of west Sonoma County. She also works as a post-fire mycoremediation researcher for CoRenewal and holds an officer role for Bay Area Applied Mycology.
With a reverence for all things weird & wild, Taye is a bonafide devotee to the Queendom of Fungi and the holistic regeneration of our living Earth. She strives to illuminate the importance of inter-species kinship and to help deepen peoples’ sense of place and purpose as an integral part of Earth’s unfolding story.
