CHAMPAIGN -- There's fungus among us! Even in places you wouldn't expect to find it.

That's the theme of a new program being offered in April by the Champaign County Extension office.

Master gardeners will show you which fungi are safe to eat (and which are not), how they can benefit your garden, the history of using fungi, and some of the modern day products in which fungi are used.

For more information about the program, log on to the Extension web site (http://web.extension.illinois.edu). Pre-registration is required.
