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.
