Guiding Principles

  • We will work in tune with the natural world and learn from it.
  • We will build an international network of supporters who nourish and are nourished by a flow of information, research and ideas – we can only do so much as individuals.
  • We are committed to ensuring that all our activities have a net ecological and environmental benefit and we will engage specialist assessment to maximise benefit and minimise risk [1].
  • We collaborate with farmers and landowners and to respect their work without judgement.
  • We continually learn and evolve as an organisation and invite curiosity and questions.
  • We will gather and share both scientific and experiential human knowledge.
  • We believe all living things should be treated with respect and that includes the Kingdom of Fungi.
  • We strive to create a decentralised equitable space for shared learning across different backgrounds, ages and lived experience.
  • We learn from our surroundings, other species and each other.
  • We value equality, diversity and inclusion, see our EDI Policy, and would always appreciate any comments to improve this.
  • We acknowledge that industrialised nations and corporations have amassed wealth by burning fossil fuels, and that supporting those workers and communities that are dealing with the consequences is central to climate justice in the shift to a low-carbon economy.
