Shiitake Love Caffeine | English - Dutch | Digital
A father earthworm and his 1000 kids are chewing their way through a bunch of organic matter. They work so hard to create perfect soil and love their job but not when they have to eat coffee grounds because they get over-energised and stressed! So, the Shiitake mushroom decides to help. He and his family eat and convert the caffeine into food for plants and then the animals can eat the plants! This is a wonderful example of Nature's many closed loop systems.
This fable was inspired by Shu-Ting Chang, Professor Emeritus of Biology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
