The mushroom hunting will concentrate mainly on the edible mushrooms that can be found growing wild in the New Forest and forests around the UK,you will also learn the most poisonous mushrooms too.
The forays will take place just outside of Ringwood (Hampshire)
Several reasons for this choice of location:
The first and main reason is that many different types of mushrooms are available in a relatively small area(many different types of trees)
Secondly , there is a large car park for easy access to the mushroom trail.
Thirdly,in the unlikely event of someone getting detached from the group its very easy to find your way back to the car park.
Finally , its a relatively good spot for continuous growth of edible mushrooms in the Autumn period , please contact us for more details.
Costs : full day (including , morning seminar , lunch at a local pub and an afternoon foray) £59 each , half day (afternoon foray only) £30
I have full permission from the Forestry Commission to be able to take people out into the New Forest for the purpose of trying to help them identify wild edible mushrooms and have been issued with a permit for this purpose.
