Join Master Gardener and Fungi Affectionado Alisha Millican as we breach the basics of Kingdom Fungi, give a brief overview of some common edible mushrooms, and then introduce you to some fungi that you may encounter while gardening! How do I keep mushrooms from growing in my yard? Are mushrooms safe to touch? Are these mushrooms going to hurt my plants?! Learn all this and more in this fun and approachable presentation on fungi for the home Gardener.
