We’ve made great progress since our crowd funding campaigns.
Since the first campaign in May-July 2018 which raised $38,130. The core ten chapters of the Fungi4Land book have been drafted by Sapphire, Roz and our 26 authors.
We then had a successful campaign to raise $16320 to illustrate Fungi4land to improve everyone’s understanding of how fungi interact with other species.
We are now putting ideas, words and pictures together. We still need help to get the book published and in the hands of people who need it.
Creating an engaging & attractive book…
We have already raised funds for professional illustrations. We also want to fund full colour printing to make the most of the illustrations and colour images.
We need your help!
To increase understanding by readers of Fungi4Land we are now looking for the funds to have substantive editing to bring the ’28 voices’ into harmony. Our mycologists sure know their Australian fungi but we want this knowledge to be easily understood by everyone.
Thanks to these and some anonymous donors for the financial support.
