WELCOME TO THE MUSHROOM CLUB OF GEORGIA
UPCOMING MEETINGS

April 1st, 2015
Langdon Cook

"Tales from the Mushroom Trail"

Wild mushroom harvesting is the largest all-cash business in North America (that's legal). Award-winning author Langdon Cook embeds himself in the shadowy subculture, reporting from both rural fringes and big city eateries. Meet the pickers, buyers, and chefs in a patch-to-plate slideshow that reveals this frontier-style economy in action.

Langdon Cook is the author of The Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America, winner of the 2014 Pacific Northwest Book Award, and Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager, which the Seattle Times called "lyrical, practical and quixotic." His writing appears in numerous publications, and he has been profiled in Bon Appetit, Outside, Salon.com, and the PBS TV series Food Forward. Cook lives in Seattle with his wife and two children.

GA Organics is sponsoring a Dinner with Langdon on Thursday, April 2, 2015, the day after the MCG meeting. Click here for more info.

Meeting are at the Intown Community Church, 2059 Lavista Road, Atlanta, 30329. We meet from 7:00 to 9:00 with a social time for snacking, identifying mushrooms, browsing guides and making friends. The social time begins at 6:30. Members bring snacks each month. A sign up list for volunteering to bring snacks will be passed around. This is a chance to learn some, connect some and get filled in on some of the club's plans for the year.
