Delicate, yet hearty and palette pleasing, mushrooms add texture and flavor to a variety of cuisines and dishes. But which of the thousands of species of mushrooms is edible, and which will kill you? We’ll begin to learn this important distinction in class, where we will discuss the basics of mushroom hunting, which mushrooms in Utah and surrounding states are edible, and of course, cooking with mushrooms. Our field trip will take us to the Uinta mountains, where we will hunt for boletus edulis (porcini), chanterelle, agaricus campestris (button), and morels. Field trip transportation is by carpool. To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.
Grandmother Mona Polacca, a member of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers and a of various UN committees, will lead a discussion on how we can be involved in water conservation solutions and indigenous wisdom. Local organizations will also be present to discuss how we can support our local community’s conservation projects.
Light snacks and beverages will be provided after the film while attendants enjoy the information tables and live music.
All proceeds go to the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Brought together by a common vision of peace, thirteen tribal elders, all grandmothers from across the globe, travel to eight different countries to share one powerful message of hope. Five years in the making and shot on location from the remote villages of the Amazon to the steps of the Vatican, this film follows these amazing women as they face a world in crisis.
