Third Thursday Talk

Wild Mushroom Talk with Elliot Cluba

We’ll explore the unique ecological importance of Chaga and its polypore (wood eating) relatives, developments in their uses as agents for radiant health, and how to best approach their harvesting and preparation that encourages symbiosis and longevity for us as well as them.  Elliot Cluba is a naturalist, herbalist, nature awareness and primitive skills educator, and a juice fasting and detoxification consultant.  He has been harvesting local plants and fungi for use in his line of herbal remedies for years, and is most passionate about connecting the individual to the life of their bioregion with sustainability as the focus.
