The value of native and introduced plants and mushrooms, including possible health benefits, culinary uses, and environmental impact, will be covered and how to determine
appropriate marketing options, i.e, wholesale, retail, direct, restaurants, etc. Includes the use of technology for tracking logs, documentation, billing, safe food handling, insurance and state and federal regulations.
