"The Mushroom Capital of the World" is found right here in Pennsylvania! Kennett Square, located in southern Chester County, produces over 65 percent of the mushrooms consumed in the United States. Grown in dark, windowless buildings, mushrooms can be farmed year-round. However, fungus farming is completely different from growing plants, like corn and potatoes. Join Dr. John Dawson for a virtual presentation on PA mushrooms. Register at www.wildwoodlake.org/events.
