Tuesday Mushroom Foraging Workshop for beginners – Lithgow

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

$120.00

Join us for a magical day out in the forest where you’ll learn the how, when, and where of wild mushroom foraging. You’ll also learn how to preserve your seasonal bounty and enjoy a wild mushroom tasting.

This workshop is for beginner mushroom foragers and will lay the foundations for your foraging journey.

Join us for a magical day out in the State Forest. Following in the footsteps of Italian and Polish families, wildcrafters, and gourmet food enthusiasts, for a fantastic seasonal treat, pine mushrooms!

Your foraging guide Diego Bonetto who has 20+ years of teaching this skill under his belt, will take you on a wild food adventure in the pine forest, uncovering the details of where to look, when to move, and how to harvest edible pine mushrooms. You’ll even get to taste these seasonal treats and learn how to preserve your bounty during our cooking session with Marnee Fox.

This is a hands-on workshop for beginners, specifically designed for those with no previous mushroom foraging experience. We will focus on the two most desirable edible species, Saffron milkcaps and Slipperies. You will learn the fundamentals of what we are hunting for, where to find them, and when to move. While we hope to find baskets full of delicious mushrooms for all, you’ll need to get your mushroom eyes ready to spot them on the forest floor. Part treasure hunt, part ecological awakening, this experience is like no other. The activity has been treasured for generations by Eastern European and Mediterranean cultures in Australia, making it a seasonal must-do to share stories and recipes.

This workshop is for beginner mushroom foragers and will lay the foundations for your foraging journey.

WHERE: Lithgow, NSW- The exact location will be disclosed to ticket holders a few days before the event.
