I interviewed Adam Haritan of; an educational channel and website about foraging plants and fungi in Pennsylvania.

I ask him a little bit about why he started LearnYourLand, and we go into some of his personal history before he got into mushrooms.

Hope you enjoy and make sure to follow LearnYourLand on…

Mushrooms mentioned:

Grifola frondosa (Maitake, Hen of the Woods)

  1. I would love if you came to North Carolina and learned the land I’m now living in with me.
    there seems to be quite a bit of good stuff here but I’m not well versed in the plant life here.
    I have found mushrooms in my own yard a posted them to my Instagram account. I really learn a lot from Learn your land and it’s a great web site. Thank you so much for all the sharing of knowledge you do.

  2. Adam, this coming season I will be going into my 6th year of desperately searching for Grifola Fondosa, Hen of the Woods. I am in extreme southern WV. I have researched, ‘hens’ do grow around me, in your home state PA, Ohio, TN etc. I do talk to others locally. Each claim of a find is followed up on. There are very good White Oak forests around me. Some have old growth trees. I will continue the search, but could you possibly relate any knowledge of Grifola Fondosa in my area. I’m not asking for a map where ‘X’ marks the spot, just confirmed finds anywhere in this area. Specifically I’m in Hinton WV on the New River. Love you vids and your site. I am a member.


  3. It seems if something is take from a forrest there is a duty to give back. One way is to always in some way mention that when collecting in the forrest to use a net bag to allow seeds to escape and replant what you have taken. That is the rule of road in many European forests.
