Are you curious about how to find and grow your own edible mushrooms? Join us for a fungi workshop at Beacon Food Forest with Jake Harris, mushroom ambassador and owner of Stone Soup Gardens! In this session, Jake will talk about how to grow a variety of mushrooms in your own home garden and how to properly identify some delicious edible mushrooms when visiting their ecosystems. Discover the joys of finding and eating fruiting fungus!
This class will explore:
- mushroom identification and resources
- how to find safe edible mushrooms in the Pacific Northwest
- how to grow mushrooms in our homes and urban farms
- mushroom recipes
- examples of fungi and tour some of the fungus related work at Beacon Food Forest
This in-person class will take place rain or shine outdoors and will include conversational lecture and a walking tour. Class size is limited to 20 people, and we will be following current public health recommendations. Please dress for the weather. We will have some mushrooms to look at together and we invite you to bring fungus you found to share knowledge with others or we can identify together.
**This workshop is part of an ongoing partnership in educational offerings with Tilth Alliance and Beacon Food Forest. The goal of these sessions is to focus on climate solutions that are creative and relevant in our urban communities.
