John is a local icon; a retired teacher, artist, community volunteer and, still, a bad boy motorcycle racer.. I recently volunteered at a summer camp and was assigned to John's pottery class . The kids enjoyed it so much and I, too, got "bitten" by the pottery bug. Any proceeds will support a youth center in Rome, GA.
The artist, Robb Smith, is joining us from Summerville, GA. Besides selling t-shirts and other airbrush art, he will also do temporary tattoos.
Michael is the owner/operator of Akers Sawmill in Fairview, NC. He began his wildcrafting career at the age of 4 with the family tradition of wild mushroom harvest. Growing up in Prague, Czech Republic, the local forest beside the family getaway provided many adventures with friends and diverse mushroom foraging. He worked alongside his family who encouraged fruit tree propagation, vegetable gardens and the care of small livestock. He brought his passion to the U.S. and expanded his knowledge of medicinal mushrooms for personal and professional use. Michael currently forages reishi, turkey tail, usnea, maitake and other herbs for Red Moon and works on his mushroom log production and sustainable wood harvesting business. His goals for the near future are expansion of challenging wild-simulated mushrooms such as lion’s mane, maitake and inoculated birch trees with chaga plugs for a more sustainable harvest.
