Monthly Recap – April 2017



April is officially behind us. As the new month (hopefully) brings May flowers, we reflect on events, new partnerships, and insight that April 2017 brought us.


Netrush attends Paul Stamets event

Paul Stamets, the founder of Host Defense and Fungi Perfecti, closed out March by giving a presentation in Seattle, WA. Stamets was primarily focused on two things: the power that mycelium has on the immune system of humans, animals, and plants, and the benefit that this immune support can provide to bees, particularly when considering their rapid population decline. Netrush began the month of April by reflecting on Paul’s presentation.
