Everything Happens Because Of The Mushrooms, And It's Awesome (feat. Yarrow Willard and an Agarikon)
It can seem impossible to comprehend everything that goes on beneath our feet when we walk in the woods, but it helps to have a Master Herbalist guide you. Yarrow Willard (a.k.a. the Herbal Jedi) is an educator, health activist, and nature enthusiast. His entire life has revolved around connecting with the natural world, and sharing his deep knowledge of plants and mushrooms. We went for a walk in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia to soak up some mushroom wisdom.
