Fungi Foraging Walk (Summer)

Discover the fascinating and delicious world of fungi with mycology enthusiast Jesse Beaman. Learn how to safely identify, forage, cook and preserve the wild mushrooms of Scotland.

A guided educational mushroom foraging tour in some of Scotlands' best fungi habitat with Jesse Beaman. We'll be focusing on the main edible summer species and how they are safely identified and responsibly foraged with notes on cooking and preserving. Any other interesting mushrooms or edible plants certainly won't be passed by. We'll cover approximately 1-2 miles during the 2-3 hour tour, with plenty of time for foraging, questions and tasting.

The location will be confirmed nearer the time, but will be within a 30 minute drive of Castle Douglas with access to parking.

Waterproof, sturdy footwear is recommended, keeping in mind we'll be off the beaten path on several occasions. Anyone wishing to take mushroom samples home is advised to bring a basket or cloth bag. The Scottish weather is as diverse as the fungi it nourishes... layers and waterproofs are also a must!
