             Mushrooms and Permaculture Seminar
                   featuring Paul Stamets

       Learn how to integrate mushroom cultivation into Permaculture gardens
and land restoration projects within the surroundings of a three acre
Mediterranean Food Forest. Hosted by Davis Bynum winery and Sonoma
Permaculture, this knowledge-filled weekend course will introduce
participants to highly talented mushroom authorities, permaculturists, and

       Saturday will feature Paul Stamets of Fungi Perfecti, author of
*Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms*. Paul will discuss both the
integration of edible & medicinal mushrooms into Permaculture gardens, and
the applications of mushroom cultivation to habitat restoration. Lunch will
feature the talents of Nit Bynum, who will prepare Thai-California cuisine
using crops gardened on-site. The day will end with light food and a tasting
of the Bynum¹s award winning, organically grown wines.

       On Sunday, Tom Alexander of Bemushroomed, and Charmoon Richardson of
the Wild About Mushrooms Co., will discuss how to build and operate a small
scale mushroom cultivation laboratory. There will be a demonstration of the
procedures for growing oyster mushrooms, concluding with each participant
making an oyster mushroom kit to take home. In addition, there will be a
session devoted to inoculating logs & wood chips with several varieties of
gourmet & medicinal mushrooms. Relevant educational materials will be
provided. Lunch will include a mushroom cooking demonstration, and a
mushroom-filled meal from the Wild About Mushrooms co.

        Register soon. Participation will be limited to allow for individual
contact with the instructors.
