Medicinal mushrooms are powerful allies for both maintaining health and working with serious illnesses such as cancer. In this workshop we will learn about some of our fungal allies including Reishi, Shiitake, Maitake, Chaga, Turkey Tails, and Oyster mushrooms. We’ll taste mushrooms, share recipes, and learn how to incorporate mushroom medicine into our lives.
