Edible Wild Mushrooms 101

$40

with Chris Woodcock

Calendar Oct 1, 2022 at 10 am, runs for 2 weeks

Note: Class meets twice 10/1 and 10/15. No class 10/8.

Hunting for edible and medicinal wild mushrooms is a fun way to supplement your gourmet food diets and get some exercise in the great outdoors. And, you can beat supply chain issues and rising food prices while learning a new fascinating outdoor hobby. We will focus on safety and identification of common safe edibles in the first class.

Did you know mushrooms are the fruit of the fungi? Just like picking an apple, it does not hurt the organism to harvest them. Join us for discussion on habitat and which trees are symbiotic with which fungi. If you want to find Grifola frondosa (hen of the woods, common name), you must know what an oak tree looks like!

The second class will be a workshop/discussion (students are invited to bring in what they have found on their own) and a chance to sample some cooked edibles. Fall brings the chance of finding maitake, oysters and chicken of the woods!! 

Please bring a $5 materials fee made payable to the instructor.

Yes, there are poisonous mushrooms. For this reason no children will be admitted to this class.
