Published in the Journal of the Society for Ecological Restoration , this article reports on a myco-phytoremediation project that investigates mycorrhizae’s effect on vegetation’s ability to lower legacy soil P, soil water P, and increase woody biomass P uptake. It also aimed to restore pollinator habitat through planting a diverse, native plant palette (32 species), blooming from February to November. Planting and offering culturally relevant plant materials to the Abenaki contributes to their land rematriation process.
