Workshop attendees will walk with Ken through the woods of the Patterson campus and learn about the great diversity of fungi around us that can be used for food and medicine! Western NC is the wild mushroom capital of the world, take advantage of this great resource in your own backyard! A cooking demonstration and tasting will follow the foray. Bring a basket and take home a verified basket of rare delicacies from the woods!
