with Chris Woodcock

Mar

March 4th to 11th, 2023

$40 More Info

Hunting for edible and medicinal wild mushrooms is a fun way to supplement your gourmet food diets and get some exercise in the great outdoors. And, you can beat supply chain issues and rising food prices while learning a new fascinating outdoor hobby. We will focus on safety and identification of common safe edibles in the first class.

Did you know mushrooms are the fruit of the fungi? Just like picking an apple, it does not hurt the organism to harvest them. Join us for discussion on habitat and which trees are symbiotic with which fungi. If you want to find Grifola frondosa (hen of the woods, common name), you must know what an oak tree looks like!

The second class will focus on the turning of the seasons and what mushrooms to look for in spring, summer and fall. This overview prepares the forager to have a good idea of what to look for and when. Class is invited to bring in photos of mushrooms for discussion and identification.

Please bring a $5 materials fee made payable to the instructor.

Yes, there are poisonous mushrooms. For this reason no children will be admitted to this class.
