Wild Mushroom Day

Sunday 01 October 2017 09:30 - Sunday 01 October 2017 16:30

The grounds of Ness are rich with mature trees, grassland and managed floral beds - a surprisingly rich habitat for finding fungi - so expect to find a wide array of poisonous, edible, and even incredible medicinal mushrooms. Last year's foray found in excess of thirty excellent edible species!  

This is a one day course on Sunday 1st October 9.30am-4pm

This popular course will be introduced with some helpful theory and key pointers for aiding correct identification of mushrooms, before we head out for some serious foraging.

There will be more of the same after lunch before we finally head back to class to assess our finds and enjoy the delights of freshly harvested wild mushrooms cooked in a variety of ways.

There are no formal entry requirements; all you need is an interest in mushrooms and eating them! Some of the session will be outdoors in the gardens (weather permitting) so please come dressed in suitable clothing and footwear.
