All About Chaga, a Medicinal Mushroom

Join mycologist and FUNGI Magazine editor Britt Bunyard for an exciting talk on the most up-to-date discoveries and uses of Chaga. Inonotus obliquus--chaga--is currently the "it" fungus. It has been used in Russian folk medicine since at least the 16th century.
 
Topics will include:
-Harvesting chaga responsibly
-The sex life of the fungus
-Proper identification and avoiding poisonous look-alikes
 
Britt's visit will be a very special treat for mycophiles who don't already know Bunyard's unique perspective and big personality. For more information about Britt Bunyard and Fungi Magazine, visit http://www.fungimag.com/.
