On Monday, the Sunflower staff were lucky enough to find ourselves lost in the woods with a local mycologist learning about the wonderful variety of mushrooms that grow in our area. Together, the group wandered amongst falling leaves exploring the many kinds of edible, medicinal (and even poisonous!) mushrooms that we stumbled upon. It was a wonderful way to spend an autumn day!
After a fair bit of tromping, finding, identifying, and discussing, we headed back to the kitchen and learned how to prepare our finds for a meal. The health benefits that mushrooms offer are truly astounding. They can help decrease stress, prevent disease, build immunity, and support your overall health and have been used successfully as food and medicine for centuries.
Seeing as we have gained this knowledge, we invite you to join us tomorrow, Saturday, October 19th, for a free class - The Magic of Medicinal Mushrooms. Nathan Searles, Master Herbalist and Sunflower employee, will teach you how to use mushrooms to stay healthy. He will recount much of what we learned Monday, as well as the information he has come across in his own practice (Forgotten Traditions Herbals).
Please pre-register (as class space is limited) by calling 524-6334 or emailing your name and number to Julia(at)SunflowerNH(dot)com. We hope to see you tomorrow (October 19th)!
Health & happiness,
