Virtual Program: Curious About Mushrooms & How to Grow Them?

Tuesday, July 20, 2021

In this 90-minute Zoom class, Elizabeth Almeida, owner/farmer at Fat Moon Farm, will cover everything from the lifecycle of mushrooms to the latest research on their nutritional and environmental benefits. Elizabeth Almeida has been devoted to food, farming, family, and community throughout her life. She grew up on a multi-generation cattle farm in Ohio, where her family grew, canned, and froze their own veggies and meat. As a kid, Elizabeth was active in 4-H and FFA, winning many awards in livestock and cooking, including Grand Champion Chickens! Her first job--from 14 to 22--was working for a caterer, where she learned to prepare and serve delicious, beautiful food. During college, she worked in a food science research lab, where she learned the exacting scientific practices that she employs today when optimizing her mushroom growing techniques. This program is hosted by Wilmington Memorial Library in partnership with Memorial Hall Library.
