PUTTING THE CALL OUT: Do you have a mushroom related skill that you would like to teach? Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP! We are putting together the schedule and are looking for a few more unique and hands-on classes! Maybe you make nature resin jewelry. Perhaps you have a special class to teach on poisons? Contact us!
We have 300 private acres to forage surrounded by state land. We have a commercial kitchen and a commercial dehydrator. We have housing for 100 people. This is a mushroom lover’s paradise.
