The Science Behind Shiitakes

with Elizabeth Almeida from Fat Moon Mushrooms

Come get your nerd on with Farmer Elizabeth, founder of Fat Moon Farm.

During our time together, we’ll uncover the facts behind the fungi. Get ready to take adeep dive into both the life cycle and anatomy of the mushroom.

Join us to cultivate an understanding of the role mushrooms play in crafting a sustainable ecosystem and how Farmer Elizabeth considers environmental impact at her organic mushroom farm. And, learn how to experiment with fungi at home with a DIY mushroom grow kit!

Mycophiles, or mushroom lovers, will leave the class with increased knowledge about the growing process, as well as an appreciation for the myriad of health and ecological benefits that mushrooms bring to the table.

Elizabeth Almeida comes from a long line of farmers. She applies this agricultural knowledge and dedication in a brand-new way by cultivating culinary mushrooms indoors in New England for year-round food production.

Her passion for mushrooms is infectious and her curiosity about the fungal kingdom has culminated in a wide breadth of knowledge about mushrooms and their environmental impact.

Come to hear Elizabeth speak and expect to both grow your green thumb and engage with fellow mycophiles in our community.
