Cancelled: Medicinal Mushrooms w/ Nadarra Leigh
March 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$10.00 – $20.00
Participants will learn how to use medicinal mushrooms. We will explore the unique phytochemistry of mushrooms and discover what makes them a superior food for your health specifically immune support and longevity. Students will understand specific uses for each mushroom; for example when supporting the immune system, use turkey tail during chemo while reishi should be used during times of stress. Hands on experience preparing fresh/dried mushrooms for use as medicine or food will cap off the class.
