TEDxGreenville November Salon - Backyard Medicine
Monday, November 5, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
TEDxGreenville November Salon
If you're like us, you can hardly walk through the yard without finding those interesting, brown fungi that shoot up in the oddest places. Not that all of them are edible (or even tasty, for that matter), but wouldn't it be fun to learn which ones are? Or get the skills to grow your own delectable, nutritious bunch?
Join us at Zen in downtown Greenville for a shroomlicious evening of education and fun. We'll even have a special "Apothecary Bar" serving healthy libations like mushroom-infused vodka and other goodies.

Tradd received this prize for his Mushroom Mountain, LLC, business venture. Since then, Mushroom Mountain has to continued to (no pun intended) grow; visitors can tour the farm on the weekends and hear Tradd speak on a myriad of shroom-related subjects.
When & Where
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGreenville, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGreenville event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
