Fungi Inside and Out
Lifelong Learning

Once we start to understand fungi, we begin to see them hard at work nearly everywhere. In the first part of this course, we will take a detailed look at how fungi interact with plants and animals to shape the world around us. In the second half, we will look at the world within and explore how fungi interact with the human body as food and their potential medical benefits. This is not a medical course and should not take the place of any treatments prescribed by your doctor, but it is a good way to understand the nutritional and health benefits of certain mushrooms. This class includes a mushroom medicinals kit and full instructions for how to prepare it. While all are welcome, this course may be best suited for folks with some background information on mycology.
