Mushroom Foraging – Saturday Sept 24th – 10am – 4:30pm

Trainees will take a closer look at the fascinating and colourful world of forest fungi. Discover their true value in the forest web of life and learn how to find, identify and safely collect nutritious gourmet forest mushrooms from Ireland’s natural woodlands.  The day will also include cooking and tasting of the mushrooms. Participants will carpool to local woods to forage for mushrooms and will need appropriate clothing/footwear and a small wicker basket for collecting mushrooms.
