DISCLAIMER- I am not a mushroom expert! I have never been to school to study mushrooms or fungus specifically. I have however studied plants for years and owned a plant specific business for 8 years.I have been foraging here since I could walk! This is not a lecture or class style workshop. We will discuss identification tools, look over samples before heading out, share our knowledge and forage together in a safe and educated way. We will move together through the forest, practice safe and sustanible harvesting practices and share our experiences. Please if you have expertise to share come on out!
