"Mushrooms and Other Foods From Oak Trees"
This talk focuses on the edible and medicinal fungi that grow in association with oak trees... including the mycorrhizal, saprophytic, and parasitic fungi. Additionally, Adam will discuss other foods and medicines from oak trees, including acorns (and the steps involved in turning acorns into edible flour).

He leads various classes and workshops related to plant and mushroom identification, wild food harvesting, nutritional and medicinal benefits of wild foods, the benefits of nature connection, and more.
