Fungi Foraging – Medicinal and Edible Mushroom Foraging in a Sussex Forest 2 dates
Want to explore the wonderful world of fungi?
Together we will venture into the magic of medicinal and edible mushrooms, at a unique location in the heart of the Sussex countryside.
The Female Forager (Alex) will guide you to safely identify mushroom species and explore their medicinal qualities in this unique foraging event that goes beyond on the traditional foraging experience.
Alex delights in sharing her passion for the magical fungi kingdom and is an empowering teacher to those who want to experience a deeper connection with nature’s edible and medicinal larder.
Cowdray Forest, West Sussex is home to an abundance of varied wildlife. Just a one and a half hour drive from London, or a 305 min train from London + a 30 min walk to the meeting point, you will enjoy beautiful woodland and an abundance of fungi spotting on this morning walk.
Exact meeting location will be shared upon ticket purchase.
