MUSHROOM WORKSHOP IN GARBER A TREMENDOUS SUCCESS
On January 20, Lech Naumovich presented his first Garber workshop of the 2018 Season, Titled: Fungi, Soil and the World Beneath Us: Restoration in Focus. For this workshop we had TWO wonderful leaders: Lech and Thea Chesney, mushroom taxonomist and botanist. When I drove up to the Claremont Ave. Entrance to set-up the refreshments for the event, Thea was already there, finding many, many mushrooms right at the entrance, and had set up books, samples, and a microscope on the hood of her car! I knew we were in for a treat.
It was a cold day, but clear, and had rained just a few days before, making it perfect for finding mushrooms. Thea continued to excite us in learning about mushrooms for the next FIVE hours – not just the 3 hours scheduled for the workshop. THANK YOU, LECH and THEA for such a fabulous workshop – opening up a another fascinating eco-system in Garber – THE WORLD BENEATH US.
