7/14/19 Mushroom and Forest Floor Plant ID and Foraging {SOLD OUT}




SOLD OUT- If you would like to be placed on the waiting list for this class, please email sjhickman13@hotmail.com and let Wes know!

Ever want to know what that mushroom was and if it was good food or medicine? Ever walk through the woods and wish you knew a few of your forest plant friends? If so, this is a wonderfully fun and informative class for you.

Escape the hustle, bustle, and crowdedness of the city to join Wes at Land Between the Lakes, and journey through the beautiful woods.  You will spend part of an amazing day identifying, gathering, and discussing the full profile of mushrooms that you walk upon.  He will explain proper foraging ethics as well as the mushroom’s personality such as environment that it grows, what season it appears, its relationship with other plants, and even its food and medicine offerings.  As you pass forest floor plants on your mushroom journey, Wes will ID several of those for you as well offering any information he has available for each of them.  Depending on the amount of mushrooms gathered, hopefully, you will also participate in preparing them to eat and enjoy together.

Mushrooms can be intimidating and a bit overwhelming so this class is wonderful to get you started feeling more confident in knowing these amazing fungi friends and how to best use them in day to day living for food and medicine.
