The FUN-damentals of Fungi Foraging

If you are fascinated by foraging but fungi gives you the fear, this walk is for you! Learn how to identify your edibles from your deadables in this fun mushroom foraging experience!

Your host Leah will lead you through the FUN-damentals of fungi on a 2.5 hour walk through the beautiful woodland just 12 miles South of Bristol and 10 miles from Bath. You will be introduced to some beginner-friendly families of fungi, as well as some of the most deadly, so you know which ones to look out for!

If you don’t know your Agarics from your Amanitas, Leah will guide you through the anatomy, habitat and key identification features to help you confidently distinguish between different families.

Delving into mushroom foraging can feel daunting as a beginner, but this walk aims to empower and equip you with enough knowledge to confidently continue your fungi foraging journey.

In previous years, this wood has had a wonderful array of edible, medicinal and poisonous mushrooms, so given the right conditions this season you can expect to find a good range of mushrooms to add to your repertoire. The exact location is given on booking.
