A Morning of Mushrooms at Holcomb Farm

The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition in West Granby will host “A Morning of Mushrooms” at Holcomb Farm on September 14. In addition to discussing important sustainability issues around foraging for fungi in our regional ecosystems, participants will explore the medicinal and edible mushrooms found in the area. They will also learn to prepare, dry and store some of the delicious, local mushrooms as well as how to extract their powerful medicine. The event runs from 9:30am to noon and costs $25.

The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition integrates traditional food wisdom with the science of nutrition, creating an innovative model of holistic health education. Classes infuse the hands-on components of sustainable regenerative gardening, culinary skills, kitchen medicine and sustainable foraging to skillfully weave together the relationship between soil health, human health and environmental sustainability.
