March 5 @ 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm
Creswick

Until recently, fungi were so unfamilar to most us that they didn’t have common names. Today, Spicy Knight and Scarlet Splash have helped shift fungi into the everyday vernacular and consciousness. Although fungi are often maligned by gardeners, clandestine fungal networks beneath the soil provide vital supportive architecture.
