We will cover culinary mushrooms like the porcini, chantarelles, oyster, morels, enoki, and common white button as well as the reishi, maitake, shitaki, Chaga, lion's mane, turkey tail, and psilocybin mushrooms.
By the end of this 3 week's course you will be empowered, know how to prepare culinary mushrooms, how to select medicinal mushrooms, and understand what the buzz about psilocybin, which is still considered a Schedule 1 drug, sharing the rank with marijuana, peyote, and the likes is.

This class will be live on zoom with sessions recorded and links provided. The dates are April 17, April 24, and May 01, 2023, from 3-5 MT.
