This course will be held in part of Lotherton Hall’s woodland near Leeds. See below for location details. The day focuses on identifying many different types of fungi. We will teach participants how to make an accurate identification so that they can feel more confident in their ability to identify edible species on their return home.
We will look at the different habitats that fungi grow in, their different shapes, spore prints, features and family groups. We will have a walk through the woods collecting and recording our finds and back at base learn how to go about identifying them.
We will provide hot, homemade mushroom soup and bread at lunchtime plus tea and coffee, but we suggest you bring some extra packed lunch to go with it. In the afternoon we set out on another foraging mission checking out a different area known to be particularly good for edible fungi. We return to base again and cook up some of the edible mushrooms that we have found for people to taste.
