Learn everything from recycling and composting household items using fungi to bioremediating oil spills and toxic waste with native mushrooms. Tradd Cotter from Mushroom Mountain will delve deeper into the fungal kingdom than ever before, describing new research with medicinal compounds and remarkable new applications for fungi in agriculture, medicine, and bioremediation.

Tradd Cotter is a microbiologist, professional mycologist, and organic gardener, who has been tissue culturing, collecting native fungi in the Southeast, and cultivating both commercially and experimentally for more than twenty-two years. His primary interest is in low-tech and no-tech cultivation strategies so that anyone can grow mushrooms on just about anything, anywhere in the world.

In 1996 he founded Mushroom Mountain to explore applications for mushrooms in various industries and currently maintains over 300 species of fungi for food production, mycoremediation of environmental pollutants, and natural alternatives to chemical pesticides. In 2014, Tradd completed and published the best-selling book Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation.

The Garden Club of Weaverville is a co-ed, non-profit organization open to everyone. For more information on what we do, becoming a member or supporting the club visit our website.
