Are you curious about the power of medicinal mushrooms? Berkshire Botanical Garden and Willie Crosby of Fungi Ally will lead an exploration in the classroom, the woods and the kitchen.

This workshop will serve as an introduction into some of the common mushrooms found in the Northeast woods and cultivated at home. The group will learn how to prepare them to access their medicinal potency. We will get to know reishi, cordyceps, lion’s mane, maitake and other fungal allies.

Owner of Fungi Ally, Willie Crosby has been growing mushrooms indoors and outdoors for nearly a decade. He works to reveal the power of mushrooms by educating people how to incorporate mushrooms into their gardens and lives. Willie teaches online for Stockbridge School of Agriculture, Cornell University, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, as well as in person at his farm in Hadley.

Be aware, the garden has financial aid available for all BBG classes.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
