Mushroom Foraging and Identification Workshop
Why explore mushrooms? We study flowers, trees and other plants but miss out on an entire natural frontier-one that ties separate parts of the eco system together in an elegant and effective way. Mushrooms are the lesser known product of the forest floor and evoke mystery and intrigue. Though not often in the spotlight, they are actively working as healers, generating life and producing delicious edible fruits. It's time to begin looking beyond the stigmas of mushrooms as dirty decomposers, and into the ways they inspire our curiosity, our culinary creativity and our inner forager.
One Day Intensive
Come experience a day of foraging and learning as we explore the world of mushrooms. We will spend time developing a well-rounded understanding of fungi structure and their function in our environment. The focus will be on identification of all fungi, both edible and toxic. This all day intensive course begins in the classroom then heads out into the field to put knowledge and observation to the test with field work identification. Bring a sack lunch.
