To compost the ecological ruins of capitalism

⁠In a time of planetary unraveling, the quiet observance of soil ecosystems offers lessons on patience, resilience, and community. When the crisis feels insurmountable and the timeline impossibly short, observing how fungi compost decay into new life may guide us towards transitioning to the Ecocene. Both fungi and our actions must break down the old, even the toxic or degraded, to make way for life to flourish. Nature always upcycles and so can we: We can work with the ecological ruins of capitalism to create something innovative and new. ⁠
