Join us for the February PBMC Educational Meeting

February 17th at 6 PM on Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82378898952

Sara Dupree, daughter of member Linda Bentson, will share with the club her journey into making mushroom tinctures this last summer.[photo of Trametes alcohol extraction jar-attached]

Many studies show that several types of mushrooms have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and even anti-cancer properties. Please join Sara for a talk and Q and A session on how to make a dual extraction tincture to harness the healing properties of mushrooms.

This should be an interesting talk and we hope you will join us!
