Wild edible mushrooms foraging

WHAT: Join us on a day outing in the State Forest. Follow the footsteps of the Italian and Polish families, wild crafters and gourmet food enthusiasts, for a fantastic seasonal treat> pine mushrooms!

This could be you!

 That's it, you heard about it, you've seen them at the farmers market, you ate them in risottos and paellas, this year you can jump on a bus to get them out of the forest!
This is the first workshop of the season, so get in early to get the skills and enjoy the upcoming 3-4 months of harvest.

Diego,
I absolutely loved Sunday’s Mushroom Trip :)
I was an avid wild-crafter back in my homeland, Michigan and have deeply missed that sense of connection since moving to Australia a few months ago.
Thank-you so much for introducing that simple magic into a new immigrant’s life.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Penrose and the Belanglo forests and learning about which mushrooms we could pick. I especially appreciated your generosity with your knowledge, and that you acknowledged the communal and cultural roots of the practice.
We shared most of the mushrooms we picked with work colleagues; and we kept a little for ourselves and made them into a delicious ragout.

A loot! Thank you Diego for the knowledge 4 years ago. Still going strong each year :)
