Mushroom Foraging – September Workshop (PM)
With countless species to choose from, this adventure will demonstrate the forests ability to spawn new life through the season. Chef Ian will demonstrate the ability to safely forage wild mushrooms. Proper field guide comprehension using the best foraging techniques along with a thorough culinary discussion will highlight the program. Don’t miss your last opportunity this year to enjoy a safe, fun and wild walk through the woods!
Dress appropriately for hiking in the woods on terrain that may be uneven and rocky. Bring a basket, a water bottle, and insect spray.
