The goal of this workshop is to learn about identifying mushrooms and the places that they grow. Students will learn to look for certain trees and plants that can be good indicators of edible and medicinal seasonal mushrooms, as well as identify those mushrooms that are poisonous. Ethical forging standards, harvesting techniques, cleaning, preserving, and preparing edible and medicinal mushrooms will be discussed and demonstrated. We can promise this workshop will give you a new appreciation for wild mushrooms in all their glory.
