HOLDEN – Greg Marley, author of Mushrooms for Health; Medicinal Secrets of Northeast Fungi will host a workshop on medicinal mushrooms from 9am to 3pm, Saturday, July 17 at Fields Pond Audubon Center.

Maine is home to a number of valuable edible and healing mushrooms. Many are easily identified and without poisonous look-a-likes. In the day long workshop, you’ll learn to identify and find common medicinal mushrooms, learn how to use them as tasty functional food, and discover research supporting their use as healing agents. We’ll make simple mushroom teas and broth, and learn how to make mushroom tinctures.
