Medicinal Mushroomery in the Rockies
Live, Zoom class through Albuquerque Herbalism. Sat Feb 25, 2023. 10am-1pm Mountain Time. $42.
The Rockies are full of medicinal mushrooms. Some are also delicious edibles, while others are a bit harder to chew. Mushrooms have acute and tonic effects throughout the body. We hear mostly about the intricate dance between mushrooms and the immune system, but multiple mushrooms also influence blood sugar regulation, heart function, reproductive health, digestion, mood, and more.
You may be familiar with Shiitake, Reishi, and Maitake; but many fascinating and useful mushrooms reside in the Rockies that are perhaps not so well known, medicinally-speaking: Artist’s Conk, Red Belted Conk, Aspen Bracket, Puffballs and more. Many of these can also be found in other parts of the US and the world.
Learn about some of the most common species you’ll encounter here in the Rockies and pick up a bit of mushroom medicine making know-how along the way. We’ll make a double extraction in class with samples for everyone to keep. Local pick up in Albuquerque will be available after class.
