Happy Memorial Day

Hope you all had a happy Memorial Day weekend. We'd like to send out our love and appreciation to all the people who have given their lives to defend our way of life, and to their families. We know a lot of our Birch Center family and friends have been touched by war and we extend our love and appreciation to you and your loved ones.


Thank you all who joined us for our Wild Edibles Walk yesterday! In case you haven't seen it, we posted a recap of the walk and all the plants we saw on Food Under Foot. Please make sure you check it out! We'll schedule our next walks soon, so please stay tuned!


Stay tuned for posts later this week! You'll hear about
  • powerful medicinal mushrooms growing wild all around us (even right here in Western PA!)
  • Ways to greatly increase your vitamin D intake, like by drying shiitake mushrooms gills-up in the sun
  • A serious caution about protein powders and drinks: Consumer Reports has found they contain high levels of heavy metals including arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury.
We'll get these and other stories to you soon!

Thanks again.
