This class is designed for anyone interested in learning how to identify wild mushrooms, and to safely and sustainably forage for them in their natural habitat.

Throughout this workshop, you will learn about the various types of mushrooms that grow in your local area, including edible and poisonous species. You will also learn how to identify mushrooms based on their physical characteristics such as their color, shape, texture, and scent.

We will cover the basics of mushroom ecology, including the different types of ecosystems in which they grow, and the symbiotic relationships between fungi and other organisms. We will also discuss the ethical considerations of foraging and how to minimize your impact on the environment.

During the hands-on portion of the workshop, we will take a guided foraging walk in a nearby forest to identify and collect wild mushrooms. You will learn how to properly harvest and store mushrooms, and how to cook and enjoy them in delicious and nutritious meals.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced forager, this workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills to safely and confidently identify and forage for wild mushrooms. Join us and discover the wonderful world of fungi!
