Mushroom Hunt and Pizza Party
Come for the wonderful teachings of Tradd Cotter from Mushroom Mountain on a mushroom hunt.
The hunt is August 31st and runs from 5:00pm - 9:00pm
A little about Tradd and Olga:
Mushroom Mountain first began in 1996, as a concept for a farm of the future. It wasn’t until 2005 when Tradd Cotter and Olga Katic met and began to develop the beginnings of what would become the coolest, privately owned mushroom research facilities. From humble beginnings, housing their laboratory in their two bedroom apartment closet in Boynton Beach, Florida, Olga and Tradd moved their operation to the Upstate South Carolina to begin the expansion that would now become a world class laboratory and research facility that occupies over 50,000 square feet of available space under roof for cultivation, mycoremediation, and medicinal research projects. The laboratory has been constructed to EPA and FDA standards and houses more than 200 species of fungi, most of them native isolates from the Eastern United States.
This event will start at The Grove and include how to forage for edible mushroom, and end back at The Grove with a pizza party made with fresh mushroom and live music.
