Mushroom Series – Mycelium Runs, Plants Talk
September 28 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Join in the conversation as we explore the underground world of nature with Andrea Ericksen from Havenswood, and discuss the importance of mycelium to our greater community. From how plants communicate with each other to how humans interfere with this communication, we will introduce ways that you can strengthen the health of our forests, gardens, and community by supporting the discussion between the plants around us.
