More info about the workshop and what to bring:
We’ll start off by exploring the basics - how to identify different types of mushrooms, including the poisonous ones, and in what kind of terrain you’re most likely to find them. Then we’ll enjoy a walk through the forest picking mushrooms as we go. During this workshop you will also how to preserve the mushrooms (drying and freezing). We’ll end the walk by checking everyone’s mushrooms. We will also look at seasonal wild herbs and berries and how to identify them if the group wishes so.
Please bring along a mushroom knife, a basket, a bottle of water (and snacks if you’d like) as well as equipment required by the weather. Mushrooms can be picked in any weather so if it rains we will still go ahead, but please wear comfortable waterproof clothes and shoes. After the workshop all participants will take home an e-book about wild mushrooms in Finland.
Please note that the availability of mushrooms depends on the weather conditions of autumn and varies in different terrains. No previous knowledge of mushrooms or other wild foods is required!
