Throughout history, fungi have confounded humans with their strange appearances, peculiar habitats and dubious connotations. Yet without fungi, life as we know it would be radically different. Fungi regulate the biosphere and support the earth’s ecological functioning. They provide us with food, wine and medicine.

Alison will take us deep into the fungal kingdom, showcasing the aesthetics of these perplexing yet enchanting organisms, and explore some of their natural and cultural curiosities.

The talk is open to both members and visitors – bring along friends and family.  The evening will commence from 7.30pm on Friday 14 June at the Fellowship Room, behind the Uniting Church on Lyttleton St (next door to the Art Gallery and Museum).  Tea and snacks available afterwards.   There is no cost for attendance
