Next, enjoy a hands-on demonstration of economical techniques for growing your own mushrooms using readily available materials. Emphasis will be on using recycled or waste materials to produce your own edible or medicinal mushrooms.

Finally, participants will learn practical mushroom cooking techniques in the Quail Hollow kitchen from a local chef and sample some savory mushroom treats.
