Join herbalist, forager and mushroom aficionado Linda Conroy for this informative PowerPoint presentation. We will focus on how to incorporate mushrooms into the kitchen and apothecary. Whether you grow, forage or purchase mushrooms, it is easy to bring them into your kitchen and medicine chest. This presentation will provide information about how to best prepare mushrooms for optimal benefit and will inspire you to incorporate them into your daily life. In addition to preparing mushrooms, we will learn about the healing qualities of specific mushrooms and tips on foraging as well as sourcing them. There will be time for questions and everyone will receive a handout with recipes and resources.
