Fungal Foods and Mushroom Medicines


This course touches on a wide range of topics related to kingdom fungi, such as identification, harvesting, history, cultivating medicinal and culinary mushrooms, and myco-remediation techniques. Students gain an understanding of the many uses and benefits of mushrooms.

For this online weekend workshop, we make it as hands-on, and interactive, as possible. Students are encouraged (though not required), to head to their local health food store, grocery store, or herbal dispensary to find some mushroom foods and medicines to use in the planned tasting and cooking demonstrations. Additional instructions are sent out one (1) week prior to the start of this class.
