A unique design for education is underway in Asheville, North Carolina and it takes its model from the vegetative part of a mushroom, mycilia.
Opening in 2013 the Mycelium School aims to cultivate social entrepreneurs and leaders in creating local change by enhancing social and environmental systems through a gap year educational program.
In this episode, Amy Potthast chats with the Mycelium School founder Matthew Abrams about the school’s design and theory, who stands to benefit, and exactly what prospective students might be like. Along the way, the discussion touches on the history of Asheville and systems thinking. Not to be missed!
