About the event

The goal of this event is to introduce participants to the work of Dr. George Washington Carver as a mycologist, to share information about his mushroom collections and fungi research.  In addition we hope to introduce and build the skills needed to identify local south eastern mushrooms especially those in our local lowcountry communities. The class will be a combination of lecture and outdoor experience to look at physical identification features, likely locations, and the seasonal occurrence of mushrooms.

Attendees will be provided information about how to grow mushrooms using indoor kits, use mushroom plugs in logs and cultivating in hardwood chip beds or mulch.  Tour the property with presenters and look for mushrooms. Chef and Forager Alex Curtis @acurtcooks will share her knowledge as a licensed forager and prepare the meal for the event, vegan choices will be available. The class is open to individuals and families with children.  There will be handouts that can be available by email or download.  There will be a special take home activity for children.

Camping spaces are available for travelers through Hipcamp, where we are listed as “Friendly Fowl Farm”.
