Sarah Foltz Jordan is a conservation biologist at the Xerces Society working to help preserve rare insect species and their habitats. She spends her free time documenting, identifying, and enjoying fungi. Her favorite edible mushrooms are Leucoagaricus americanus, the Reddening Lepiota, and Entoloma abortiva, the Abortive Ent.
Nick Jordan believes that fungi are our allies and that their role on this planet is powerful and often underestimated. During the summer, he and Sarah grow and market vegetables, fruit, and of course mushrooms on their small organic farm in Princeton, MN. In his other profession, Nick works with network technology for Intel. His favorite mushrooms to eat are the great winged polypores, Grifola frondosa, the Hen of the Woods, and Laetiporus sulphureus, the Sulphur Shelf.
Both Nick and Sarah enjoy eating all kinds of wild edibles, but are especially fond of fungi. Together, they teach Edible Mushroom Workshops designed to help people develop the skills and confidence to begin collecting, identifying, and safely eating wild edible mushrooms. Sarah and Nick live in Princeton, Minnesota with their baby, Scion Frank.
