Let’s Talk Mushrooms talk with The Nottingham Forager

Join us for a Show and Tell with the Nottingham Forager, to learn & make the most of the abundance that Nature has to offer! Discover the mushroom species in your local environment and safely identify them.

Love mushrooms? Fancy hunting wild ones? Got that covered.

Join us for a relaxed, one hour long session complete with freshly infused mushroom coffee to sample. You can even get your zero waste shopping done afterwards! Make sure to bring your containers and get 10% off any Shop Zero purchases during the evening.

Discover techniques and tips for spotting your own fungi and learn all important identification. We’ll talk about the legal and ethical aspects of foraging, how much you’re allowed to take, and how much you really should (hint: we like to make sure there’s more than enough left for wildlife as well as us to eat), as well as looking at medicinal and traditional uses of mushrooms.

If you’ve already been to one of Lucy’s talks with us, you’ll know how brilliant they are.

    I had a lot of fun during this evening of mushroomy goodness. It was informative and educational, very interactive, engaging and good value.

    We got to try a mushroom infused coffee while learning why it’s a good thing to consider plus it’s origins.
    Lots of chat about the whats, wheres and whys of mushrooms and mycelium, plus a brilliant hands on with the actual making-of-the-kit (again, with great understanding of why we were doing what we were doing, how to care for it, why it works etc).

    Fantastic end to the session with some seasonally appropriate ‘wild mushroom foraging’ tips, which have already come in handy as I’ve found and eaten my first delicious Dryads Saddle.

    I really enjoyed the workshop and Lucys enthusiasm.
