WELCOME TO THE MUSHROOM CLUB OF GEORGIA
UPCOMING MEETINGS

November 7th, 2018

Adam Haritan
"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).

Adam Haritan is a wild food enthusiast, researcher, and forager currently residing in Western Pennsylvania. 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. His YouTube channel (YouTube.com/LearnYourLand) features over 100 videos pertaining to plant and mushroom identification, and his website (LearnYourLand.com) serves as a unique online community and database of naturalists and nature events. An avid proponent of wild fungi, Adam is an active participant and Vice President of the Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club.

As always, try to come around 6:15 to meet, greet, and share in some snacks!
