"Wild Mushrooms 101

Join us for this rare opportunity

to learn from a 30 year veteran

of wild mushroom foraging! You

will gain an understanding of the ‘safe

six’ mushrooms to harvest, including the

rules of wild foraging, and the ability to

identify common poisonous mushrooms.

Topics include biology, tree identification,

ethics, safety, storage and preparation.

Your instructor is a certified expert

by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture

and owns Martha’s Mushrooms. On

Saturday, we’ll hike into the woods to forage

and prepare wild mushrooms. Bring

for the hike: Food/beverage, camera, waterproof

gear, sun protection and other
