What you'll do
Mushroom Workshop - 4 hour hike. Walking the trails of a 400 acre property. Learn to identify Seasonal edibles and mushrooms. Learn to identify specific growth edible mushrooms, spore printing and ethical harvesting. Dependent on the time in calendar we will be looking for and finding Chanterelles ( Yellow, Black trumpet, Cinnabar), Hedgehogs, Boletes, Oysters and my personal favorite - Lobster Mushrooms. This is an intense field practicum. Participants of this workshop will be required to dress appropriate for all weather including tick spray. Bring paper bags, basket, Scissors, snacks and water. All edibles (once identified) will be divided equally between each participant with a list of proprietary 'Wild Feast' recipes for home processing.
