MMF is part of the growing movements of sustainability, healthy cooking and legalization of all plant food and medicine. The public is calling for more local farms, organic foods, humanely raised meats, and natural medicine to combat our modern health epidemics

Our goal is to teach you all about the wild and wonderful world of mushrooms with lectures, classes, cooking demos, nature forays and more.
