FREE SEMINAR: The Transformative Power of Mushrooms – From Our Earth to Your Health

February 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| Free

Join us for a lecture on the complex relationship between mushroom mycelium and our multifaceted world. Myco-remediation of toxic earth, Myco-filtration of contaminated water, and Myco-agricultural practices that invigorate soils are all methods of utilizing these often overlooked mushroom root structures to positively impact our environment. We will also present how new studies show that mycelium can support honeybees in their fight against the devastation of colony collapse disorder.

Finally, we will discuss the astounding health benefits of different mushroom species to support balanced immunity, breathing, cardiovascular health, digestion, and brain and nerve function. Learn which mycological allies can best support your unique needs!
