Mushrooming 101, Practicum at Hill and Dale Farm. Part two of our mushroom courses. Participants of this hands on walk and talk will have taken the online 101 introduction. Many mushrooms are out by June 17 and we will run out and have a look around. Event starts at Hill and Dale Farm at 8 AM and ends at 3. We will also touch on medicinal mushrooms and their uses. $65 per person.

We recommend taking the online intro listed below and available via recorded workshop.

Mushrooming 101 – how to identify common medicinal and edible mushrooms and where they grow. This online course will begin your journey into mushrooms, and how to identify them using a common key. Participants are required to have the book, “ Mushrooms of Western Canada”, by Schalkwijk-Barendsen or “ The Field Guide to Mushrooms”, by the National Audubon Society for use through the presentation. Nothing takes the place of wandering with an experienced forager or amateur mycologists so we will offer the follow up workshop Mushrooming 101 for that purpose in the spring. This online course runs May 17, 2023 at 7 p.m. $25 per person, support materials provided. The practical course runs as outlined below.
