Virtual Workshop: Mushroom Foraging

We just hosted our annual Mushroom Foraging Workshop online earlier this week, and it was a huge success! However, multiple people reached out to us saying they couldn’t make it but still wanted to opportunity to attend. With mushroom season right around the corner, we decided to host another session on Monday, May 11th at 6:00PM!

Heading this event are the same awesome instructors as last time: Lorena Rangel of Moorhead and Ashley Hawkins of California! Both have higher education in botany, worked extensively in plant pathology and are huge mushroom enthusiasts.

With decades of experience under their belts, they will:
–> EQUIP YOU with the knowledge to find & identify certain mushrooms
–> SHARE fungal facts and their role in the environment
–> GO OVER legalities & risks
–> TEACH proper cooking techniques
–> GIVE YOU resources to continue learning
–> PREPARE YOU for your own foraging adventure!

This workshop is a favorite of ours for many reasons! As always, we love when people get outside. Foraging helps you to immerse yourself in nature, familiarize yourself with the land, and become more aware of your surroundings.

We believe this is an extremely important skill to have on multiple levels. Whether disaster strikes, you want to save some money on food, you’re craving some fresh air & exercise, or want to start a new family hobby, foraging can benefit everyone! Especially with the current concerns around food during the pandemic such as social distance during grocery shopping, grocery store shortages, and eating healthy to fight off illness, this is the perfect activity.
