MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS: Fungi for a Healthy Body and World
Sun, April 9, 2017, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM EDT
The healing properties of mushrooms have been utilized for over two thousand of years. What once was illegal for anyone but the emperor to consume is now available to everyone; the Mushroom of Immortality. Find out about how you can improve your health with mushrooms, how to make mushroom tinctures, and the future of fungi as medicine. Join John Michelotti, the mushroom guy at Catskill Fungi, to learn and discus how mushrooms can heal our bodies, our minds, and the planet.
John Michelotti is the owner of Catskill Fungi, whose mission is to empower people through Fungi via outdoor guided mushroom classes, cultivation courses, educational talks, private consultations, and mushroom health supplements, which he makes from mushrooms he grows on his family farm in the Catskill Mountains. He served on the Mushroom Advisory Panel for Certified Naturally Grown to help develop the standards for ecological practices in mushroom production. John is the President of the Mid-Hudson Mycological Association (MHMA), and a member of North American Mycological Association (NAMA) as well as Amazon Mycorenweal Project researching the utilization of Fungi to remediate oil spills in the Amazon Rainforest. His goal is to educate and inspire people to pair with fungi so we can improve our health, our environment and our communities.
