Past events

Fungi events in May 2024

We have two fungi events this year. They are both the same - choose to attend Saturday or Sunday.  While called identifying edible fungi, they are suitable for anyone interested in fungi ID and ecology.

Anyone who has attended one of Alison's workshops has come away filled with enthusiasm, knowledge, an awareness of how important fungi are in the world, and impressed with her knowledge and teaching ability.  Someone did say after a workshop "I think I will take up photographing fungi rather than foraging" - it is seriously important to be confident with your ID.

While this event is called edible fungi, it is suitable for anyone wanting to learn about fungi and fungi identification. To book
