Medicinal Fungi- Identification and Folklore – August

20 August, 2017 at 10:00 am til 3:00 pm

Delve into the fascinating world of fungi in this one day course taught by mycologist Ali Murfitt from Our Living Land.

With a focus on medicinal and edible fungi, this course will equip you with the knowledge to accurately identify fungi, know which ones you should leave in the woods and how you can incorporate fungi in your diet for food and good health. Sustainable harvesting, fungi ecology,  identification techniques and mushroom folklore will all be explored through an indoor session and fungi foray.

We aim to make our events participatory, enjoyable and inclusive, and will do our best to cater to individual needs & learning styles – please get in touch if you have any concerns.

Cost is offered on a sliding scale of £30-£60 for the day with tickets available through Brown Paper Tickets

As a co-op we value making our workshops as accessible as possible, but we have to balance this with earning a living income, so please pay the full price if you can afford it. We really appreciate your continuing support which enables us to carry out our community work.
