'Mushrooms for Health' at Farmer's Fare....[MD]
    #11369076 - 11/02/09 02:57 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Nov. 2 09 - Village Soup



ROCKPORT (Nov 2): Midcoast mycologist Greg Marley will introduce his new book "Mushrooms for Health: Medicinal Secrets of Northeastern Fungi" Saturday, Nov. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Farmers Fare, corner of West (Route 90) and Cross streets.

The author will give a brief presentation on the mushrooms covered in the Down East Books volume, those that are good for your health and your dinner plate, followed by a sampling of mushrooms indigenous to the Northeast. Farmers Fare also will offer their menu of Maine wines and beers to compliment the event."Mushrooms for Health" discusses in great depth the world's best researched and supported medicinal mushrooms. Marley focuses on 10 mushroom species found in New England and elsewhere. In each case, there are no poisonous look-alikes discussed in the book. It is an informational guidebook on regional mycology complete with 20 color photographs that will appeal to anyone who enjoys foraging and who has an interest in alternative, self-directed health care.

Marley of Rockland has studied mushrooms for more than 30 years. He has a bachelor of science in botany with a minor in chemistry and a focus on plant taxonomy and ecology; and he is a volunteer consultant for the Northern New England Poison Control Center and various hospital emergency rooms for cases involving mushroom ingestion and identification. He also cultivates edible and medicinal mushrooms and provides wild edible mushrooms to professional chefs.

I live on the West coast but am still going to keep my eyes peeled for it. I think it sounds good as well.

I'm sure it will pop up in Half Price Books eventually. I have my girlfriend and best friend snatch up any book on mycology (they work there).

Well, think I might just have to make an appearance, if just to hear what he has to say, he sounds like he for certain knows his shit. It's weird, if I don't go to school for nursing I'm going to major in Botany and minor in Chem. I'd love to pick his brain for awhile.

If only I was able to get up to Rockport this weekend!  Still a book I am interested in, especially since I'm in the northeast.

Yes, that string of words I arranged together does make sense!
