The fire sweeps through and blackens everything in its path.  Then, a few weeks or months later, green shoots. 

And morel mushrooms, lots and LOTS of morels in some places. 

Recent fire seasons have laid waste to large patches of forest, but also encouraged the growth of the tasty mushrooms. 

Johnny Anderson, one of the owners of Foods In Season, is a big fan of morels.

  Some of those berries growing on bushes look like they might be mighty tasty. But they could also be poisonous, so we walk on by. It's great to know WHICH plants that grow wild are edible. 

  John Kallas of Wild Food Adventures possesses that knowledge. He also shares it, like in a session coming to the Eugene Library on September 2nd.
