Mushroom ID and Growing – 1st February
THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW SOLD OUT!
1st February, 10.30am – 2pm
Knowing where to start to reap the bounty of mushroom and fungi is the biggest hurdle for those new to foraging. Join forager Amy Rankine for this in-depth workshop to discover the weird and wonderful world of fungi. Participants will learn how to recognise the environments that particular species are most likely to be found in and build up a step by step method of how to approach a mushroom ID. Discover the range of flavours, textures and what they can add to your diet.
Due to the time of year, this workshop will not include a foraging walk but instead will be held indoors where a variety of different mushrooms will be brought along for participants to study and taste. There’ll also be a short introduction to cultivating mushrooms at home!
We’ll also discuss how sustainability is an essential part of foraging, both for mushrooms as well as plants, nuts and fruits. Look at how wild food can become a complimentary part of a meal while being sympathetic to the environment arround you, and why this is such a key part of the forager’s phillosophy.
