ATHOL — On Thursday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at the Millers River Environmental Center, 100 Main St., Brian Bailey will discuss “Making Mushrooms a Part of Your Life.” Bailey, a third-generation farmer of the Diamond Family, has a keen interest in sustainable farming. He currently works on an organic mushroom farm and cultivates at home. He will offer an understanding of fungi, including health benefits, cultivation, and the joys and dangers of foraging. Attendees will also get to taste some of his recipes.

An affiliate of the Millers River Environmental Center in Athol, the North Quabbin Garden Club formed in 2006 to encourage interest in all phases of home gardening. With efforts to promote better horticultural practices and foster civic beauty, emphasis is placed on use of native plants, organic gardening, and the conservation of natural resources.

Monthly meetings are usually held on the third Thursday evening of each month featuring informative speakers or workshop sessions. Members are currently working on a wildlife habitat garden at the Millers River Environmental Center. Guests and new members are always welcome, so join us this month and learn something new about gardening. Meetings are free to members and guests are asked for a donation.
