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. The 4 hours will be split up into 4 sessions: education; group exploring; consolidation of learning; and picnic lunch.

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.

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