Most of us ignore or avoid MUSHROOMS never knowing their health benefits and value to the environment.
Eric Osborne, instructor and owner of Magnificent Mushrooms, has a Masters in Education and is Indiana’s first State recognized wild mushroom expert.  He will help us understand the benefits of growing and eating mushrooms and how to grow gourmet in our own backyards.  We will also visit and learn from the new Billy Goat Hill Garden mushroom project.
