Saturday, July 21. Mushroom Foraging Workshop, 10:00 am to noon. Location TBD. Class size is limited.

Intrigued by the wild world of mushroom foraging?

Join Ari Rockland-Miller, co-founder of The Mushroom Forager, and learn to identify species fruiting in the Champlain Valley area during summer.

Workshop participants will also learn strategy and technique for the ethical and sustainable harvesting of wild mushrooms. This workshop will begin with a colorful presentation introducing foraging safety, strategy, and our region’s most distinctive and delicious species. Then, you’ll put on your forager’s eyes for a guided foray, exact location TBD.
