            PRESS RELEASE - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


            Mushrooms and Permaculture Seminar
                  featuring Paul Stamets

      Learn how to integrate mushroom cultivation into Permaculture
gardens
and land restoration projects within the surroundings of a three acre
Mediterranean Food Forest. Hosted by Davis Bynum winery and Sonoma
Permaculture, this knowledge-filled weekend course will introduce
participants to highly talented mushroom authorities, permaculturists,
and
cooks.

      Saturday will feature Paul Stamets of Fungi Perfecti, author of
*Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms*. Paul will discuss both the
integration of edible & medicinal mushrooms into Permaculture gardens,
and
the applications of mushroom cultivation to habitat restoration. Lunch
will
feature the talents of Nit Bynum, who will prepare Thai-California
cuisine
using crops gardened on-site. The day will end with light food and a
tasting
of the Bynum¹s award winning, organically grown wines.

      On Sunday, Tom Alexander of Bemushroomed, and Charmoon Richardson
of
the Wild About Mushrooms Co., will discuss how to build and operate a
small
scale mushroom cultivation laboratory. There will be a demonstration of
the
procedures for growing oyster mushrooms, concluding with each
participant
making an oyster mushroom kit to take home. In addition, there will be a
session devoted to inoculating logs & wood chips with several varieties
of
gourmet & medicinal mushrooms. Relevant educational materials will be
provided. Lunch will include a mushroom cooking demonstration, and a
mushroom-filled meal from the Wild About Mushrooms co.
