All Mushrooms are Magical:
Experiencing the Phantasmagorical Realm
With Ken Litchfield
We will learn about many of our favorite local Bay Area and Northern California mushrooms and their culinary, herbal/medicinal, dye and psychoactive properties and uses.
Ken will discuss their healing properties for human health and also their mycoremediation properties for healing the earth and building healthy soils. He will share easy to learn techniques he has implemented in woodland, garden and lab situations.
Ken Litchfield has been the Chair of the Cultivation Committee of the Mycological Society of San Francisco for over 30 years. During that time he he led a team of mushroom cultivation enthusiasts to institute the mushroom society's first mushroom garden at Randall Museum.
