Come and explore fungi's impact in the environment, our health, and our futures as we explore the benefits of fungi and mushrooms with John Michelotti from Catskill Fungi.

People have been pairing with fungi for centuries to improve their immune systems, to survive on the land, and change their realities. These organisms have developed their relationship with the earth for over 2 billion years and help create the world as we know it today.

In this workshop, you will learn how to pair with fungi to improve your health as we focus on the medicinal properties of mushrooms. You will also learn how to make your own extracts from these and take home what you create.

Every participant will go home with a 2oz dropper bottle of chaga tincture ($28 sales value). No previous experience is required.
