Mushroom Foraging Workshop with Franca Norris –  Sunday 5 June Screen Shot 2016-05-13 at 10.15.41 AM

The Beechworth Food Co-op and Beechworth Urban Landcare & Sustainability Group would like to invite you to a Mushroom Forage in the Forest!

The time of year means one thing to a North East resident – wild mushrooms! The forage will be guided by experienced mushroom forager Franca Norris; who learned to identify edible mushrooms from her father, a professional forager in Italy.

Delicious mushroom tastes will be supplied, however coeliacs cannot be catered for. Anyone with a yeast allergy would also be at risk of mushroom allergy also and should not attend.

A detailed location will be advised via email (in the forest near Beechworth where the mushrooms are sprouting), closer to the date. Strictly limited to 20 participants! Email us now at [email protected] to secure your place.

$35 per person non-members
$30 per person for members of the Co-op or BULS

All participants will need to be able to walk on uneven ground and scramble over fallen trees.

Children under 6 are not safe in the forest, so due to insurance requirements they may not enter the forest at all. Each person will also need to pay full price to be covered by insurance (that means kids who come pay adult price:/)

Hard Hats and High Vis Vests will be supplied – Gorgeous! HVP don’t want you to accidentally get felled!
