April 6th / 6-7:30pm / Spring Mushroom Identification & Ganoderma Tincture with Emily Hemeyer of Wild Seed Field Museum
With Spring rain comes fungi! Gear up for the season learning basic mushroom identification and preservation techniques in the Forest & Meadow Garden. We'll focus on Spring edibles, medicinals and toxic species to avoid. Discover uses, preservation and foraging tips along with stories from the field. Each participant will leave with a small jar of Ganoderma (Reishi) tincture to finish processing at home. Emily has a decade of devoted field experience and is a member of the Missouri Mycological Society (MOMS) and the North American Mycological Association (NAMA).

Sliding Scale Tickets: In an effort to make our classes accessible to everyone, we offer a sliding scale. The Regular Price option covers the full costs of our classes, including paying our teachers and staff, as well as any materials fees. The Pay It Forward option offers the opportunity for members of our community to pay a little extra for their ticket to help cover the costs of our Community Support option, which is for those for whom the Regular Price ticket may be a stretch financially. No proof of income required.
Refund Policy: We want to keep our class prices affordable. Due to limited class size, class material purchasing and administration costs, tickets for classes are non-refundable. Thank you for your understanding here!
