Event description

Description

He's back!!! Unity Presbyterian church is delighted to host our second event with Randy Danielson, aka "Pittsburgh's Mushroom Man". His first event was so well-received that he is back by popular demand.

Do you know the mushroom man? … No, he’s not a guy with long hair, wearing a tie-dyed shirt and sporting rounded sunglasses with blue lenses. If anything, you may want to picture him as more of an ancient medicine man. Why? Because more and more scientists are discovering that mushrooms are an integral part of the human immune system. Mushrooms not only can prevent cancer, but research is finding they have a myriad of other healing properties, such as reversing nerve damage.

Randy's experience dates all the way back to when he began picking wild mushrooms with his grandmother at 8-years-old. You can learn more about Randy and his lengthy experience with mushrooms in this feature article from The Tribune Review

Unity Presbyterian Church and Nature’s Antidotes LLC (the business that supports the church health and wellness events) is very excited to team up with Randy. We are proud to offer a unique, educational and interactive field trip experience.

On Saturday, July 21st, at 9:00am we will meet in the Unity Chapel for the educational workshop portion of this event. Around 10:00am we will depart for the mushroom walk, which will be in Moon Township. The walk involves a beginner’s level hike, but you must be physically fit enough to walk approximately two miles. Please wear thin clothing that covers your arms and legs, shoes appropriate for the woods and be sure to apply tick repellent.

This event is $15 per person, please use the Eventbrite link on this event to purchase tickets. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Unity Presbyterian Church. Attendance is limited to 30 people.

We hope that you will take advantage of this one-of-kind experience and holistic educational opportunity. Children ages 7 and over are welcome at this event.
