Rebecca Fyffe volunteers at the Mycological Association and will be giving a hands on seminar all about mushrooms. If ever anyone had questions about mushrooms, this definitely is the seminar to attend. There will be informative talks & demonstrations including: how to grow, how to cook, and an explanation of the plants (fungi) medicinal qualities.
Everything you ever wanted to know about mushrooms should be answered (after the 2 hour seminar and demos). There will also be additional fun following the event, at the mushroom fair, which provides unique mushroom art to view, and specialty mushroom items (for purchase). This fair is especially great for the mushroom enthusiasts in the crowd.
