Fat of the Land At PSMS

Langdon Cook of the local blog Fat of The Land will be presenting his new book , Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager, at Puget Sound Mycological Society (PSMS) this Tuesday the 8th of September. Langdon's talk will surely be fun and informative and this is also a great reason to check out the local mushroom club.

PSMS is a rich community of mushroom enthusiasts from weekend foragers to acclaimed mycologists. They have monthly meetings with interesting and varied presenters, a great snail-mail newsletter, workshops, and organized mushroom hunting forays. Their Annual Mushroom Show in mid-October is a legendary event celebrating everything fungi - cooking demos, mushroom specimen exhibits, and expert identifiers to name a few things. Actually at every meeting there are mushroom identifiers, so bring your backyard fungi and find out what it actually is.

It is free to check out a meeting, and membership is only $25 for a one person or a family. Starting this Tuesday they will be selling my calendar as a fundraiser for only $12 ($1 off the sugg. retail price) along side their choice selection of nature and guide books for sale.
