Maymana Arefin (she/they) is a nature guide, facilitator, writer and community gardener based in south London. Through leading nature immersions, plant and fungi walks, her work focuses on deep rest and healing, tending to land and soil, and restoring our communion with non-human kin. In 2020, Maymana founded @fungi.futures, a space to map radical alternative futures guided by her joy and passion for fungi. Maymana's award-winning MSc research on how the mycelial networks of fungi may be used as a metaphor for mutual aid seeks to re-imagine an unjust world through a politics of hope. She is strongly committed to justice – in all of its forms – and believes that in order to realise this, we must prioritise care.
