Led by mushroom expert Phillip Carpenter.
This workshop will be useful for beginners as well as for people with some knowledge of mushrooms. We will start the day with an introduction to the subject-how to get started, what you need to be concerned about in doing identification, and a question and answer period. After that, we will go into the field to gather mushrooms, following the advice provided in the introduction. When we return from gathering mushrooms we’ll get into the identification part of the workshop using the field guide Mushrooms Demystified by David Aurora. The process of identifying mushrooms will be described with the variety of mushrooms that were gathered in the field.
