Show 121: Herb Lab – The Mushrooming World Of Mushrooms With Jeff Chilton

After an interview with Jeff Chilton, commercial grower, founder of Nammex and expert in the medicinal mushroom industry, Sue and Candace talk about how they incorporate mushrooms in their own lives. They also received a gift from the desert of Joshua Tree herbs from Christina Sanchez, owner of Every Leaf Speaks. This has been a week of healing and wonder for the Practical Herbalists.
