AMS Spring Mushroom Talk Series:
Ash Ritter - The Meandering Mushroom Path:: Functional Fungi 101
As the popularity of therapeutic fungi takes hold in the colonized west, the market is seemingly flooded with an endless array of packets, powders, bottles, and capsules, paired with a profusion of vague memes touting the benefits to our well being... but what’s really going on in there? Together, let's weave historical, clinical, and traditional context with the fabulous world of edible and medicinal mushrooms, while learning how to maximize the therapeutic value of our cultivated, store-bought, and foraged fungi. Leave our talk with a spark of inspiration and a list of hot tips to make your own truly salubrious broths and extracts, while incorporating them in fun and delicious ways!
Ash Ritter is an ethnobotanist, practicing herbalist, writer, and educator with over 20 years of study in clinical, traditional, academic, and directly relational terrains. From an early age, she continuously remains devoted to the deep curiosity of connectivity between history, fungi, people, and plants. One-on-one longterm apprenticeships are the cornerstone of her training, with a focus on druid herbalism, clinical botanical & naturopathic medicine, California-Mexican curanderismo, and MacGuyver-style urban & wilderness first aid.
Ash counsels and creates in her private practice, Black Sage Botanicals, to empower and engage direct relationships with & as the living world. She joyfully offers in-depth consultation services, and teaches both publicly and privately. Ash currently lives in a century-old gnome house in the Sonoran desert, and enjoys tracking deer through the spiny brush, sitting with 200-year-old cacti, and waiting for monsoon season thunderstorms as she writes her first book.
