This contains 3 items: a bag of dried Black Trumpet mushrooms for eating, a tincture of double-extraction Mushroom Blend (Reishi, Chaga and Turkey Tail) for immune support and a solid Black Trumpet scent–intense, woodsy and not for the faint of heart.This set provides an immersion in the world of Fungi for exploration and fun.
Sets are 30.00 and ship for 5.00!

Also, I will be at the IM4US conference in Portland, OR (www.IM4US.org) in September talking about bringing the JOYS of movement to the not-so-athletic and I will be at the Dandelion Seed Conference in Olympia, WA in October discussing Body image and why it matters to health care and Radherb convergence at Farmacy herbs in RI talking about niche herbal business and plant-walkin’!
Another class is in the works for me at the awesome new Providence Bodywork School in Providence RI, date yet to be determined.
I hope to see y’all there, and if you’d like to make an order go right to the source by e-mailing me: Fellowworkersfarm@gmail.com ( I use PayPal) or use this link to my Local Harvest store!
