Mushroom foraging
May 29 @ 10:00 – 14:00

Join Anna, the Urban Nanna, for an educational session about wild mushrooms: when, where & how to find them, what to look for and how to use them.

You will find and identify a range of wild, edible mushrooms. You will learn the basic principles and protocols of foraging, and then move on to mushroom specifics. You will examine examples of the types of mushrooms to look for on the day, and be shown the physical features you can use to correctly identify them. There will also be information on how to safely prepare and enjoy eating the mushrooms you find.

Included in the session fee is a learning pack to take home with you, a sample of how wild mushrooms can be cooked, and a hot drink.

Overall, there will be around 1-2km of walking over grassy terrain involved.
