  • Edible Mushrooms for the Beginner: Discover Your Foolproof Few – A Talk by Greg Marley

    Foraging for wild mushrooms has become a favored pastime for New Englanders of all ages. There are some truly delicious edible mushrooms in our forests and fields that are common and easily identified. The single thing that holds people back? There are some toxic mushrooms that can make you sick and a small number, dangerously sick. This presentation will introduce you to a group of common mushrooms that are easily identifiable and without toxic look-alikes. Join us for an evening learning a handful of foolproof edible mushrooms.

    Greg Marley has been collecting, studying, eating, growing and teaching mushrooms for over 45 years. He has spread his love of mushrooms to hundreds through walks, talks and classes held across the New England over the past 30 years. Marley is the author of two popular mushroom books: Chanterelle Dreams, Amanita Nightmares: The Love, Lore, and Mystique of Mushrooms, and Mushrooms for Health: Medicinal Secrets of Northeastern Fungi. As a volunteer mushroom identification consultant to Poison Centers across New England since 2001, he provides expertise in mushroom poisoning cases.

    This event will take place in the Community Room and will be livestreamed via Zoom. For more information or for Zoom links, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov.
