Mushroom Foraging with John Wright @ Sculpture by the Lakes

Mushroom Foraging with John Wright @ Sculpture by the Lakes

Spend a day with John Wright, author of the River Cottage Mushroom Handbook, learning to identify mushrooms and toadstools.

You’ll spend the day looking for fungi and John will identify everything (well, nearly everything) that you find.

Puddletown Forest is an excellent place to see mushrooms and toadstools as the pine and spruce have many associated fungal species.

The day is primarily about identification, with John explaining what to look out for when trying to work out which species a specimen belongs to.

However, edibility and toxicity will be discussed in depth. If you are very lucky, there might be a few edible specimens to be found and we will have a fry-up. 

£70. To book either email info@sculpturebythelakes.co.uk, call 07720 637808 or visit the website www.sculpturebythelakes.co.uk
