Come along and get inspired to love the fungi world and advance your skills above the humble slippery jack and pine mushroom. The safe and respectful way to enter the fungi world.
Are you interested in learning how to identify wild mushrooms and gather them safely and in a respectful way? Join us for a hands-on Mushroom Foraging Workshop, where you’ll discover the fascinating world of fungi and gain valuable skills in identifying different types of mushrooms in the wild.
Our workshop is designed for beginners and intermediate-level foragers who want to learn the basics of mushroom identification, including key features to look for, common species in your area, and potential lookalikes to avoid. You’ll also learn about the ecological roles of mushrooms, their nutritional and medicinal benefits, and how to cook and preserve them for optimal flavor and shelf life.
During the workshop, we’ll take a guided walk in the pristine forest to search for mushrooms in their natural habitat. Our expert forager, the Fermented Mumma-Jess, will teach you how to use field guides, spore prints, and other tools to identify mushrooms by their colour, shape, texture, and scent. You’ll also learn about the different parts of a mushroom, including the cap, stem, gills, and pores, and how to distinguish between edible and poisonous species.
After our foraging expedition, we’ll return to our workshop space to examine our finds and discuss their properties and uses. You’ll have the opportunity to taste and smell a variety of mushrooms, including some that are safe to eat and others that are not. The Fermented Mumma, will answer your questions and provide feedback on your identification skills, so you can feel confident in your ability to forage for mushrooms on your own.
To finish off, The Fermented Mumma is going to cook up a feast of fermented mushrooms
By the end of the workshop, you’ll have a deeper appreciation for the diversity and beauty of mushrooms, as well as the skills and knowledge to safely and sustainably forage for them in the wild.
You will part with knowledge and eBook that will get you started on your journey, recipes to utilize your mushrooms from your future forages.
