This was the Societies first attempt at a full Zoom meeting and we were very pleased to welcome Ben Devine who was an enormous help in getting the ball rolling as we experienced a few problems prior to starting the meeting proper.
However once we got going Ben produced an excellent talk with illustrations and photo’s.
He walked us through various topics such as:-
How Fungi function
Uses of Fungi such as in medicine
Identification and collection
Noteworthy groups and interesting species
The pitfalls of eating Fungi
Then to finish the evening and to see how much we had been listening he had a quiz lined up.
This was a very entertaining evening and we are most grateful to Ben for his contribution.
