[image-1] Local food hub GrowFood Carolina is holding its sixth annual Mushroom Gathering Fri. Oct. 18 from 6-9 p.m at 990 Morrison Drive.

The event will play host to numerous fungi-centric activities such as mushroom-related beverages and dishes created by local chefs, plus local beer and live music.

Microbiologist and mycologist — basically a fungi-professional — Tradd Cotter will be onsite to provide fungus-related facts and answer any questions.

Tickets may be purchased through Eventbrite and start at $40 for military members, and $55 for general admission.

GrowFood Carolina is part of the Coastal Conservation League and works with producers, restaurants, and groceries to connect local farmers with vendors.
