Fascinating Fungi

The Magic of Mushrooms Course

Throughout the year there are a vast array of edible (and inedible) species of fungi, and although these often form a part of my wildfood walks and wildlife courses, they have a special walk of their own, when the season is right.

Within my Magic of Mushrooms events across North Bristol, run from September – November, we will look at the identification and habitats of species we find along the way, how they work and why they make a woodland healthy, along with some vital environmental factors and considerations that both new and seasoned mushroom enthusiasts need to know. We will aim to collect a selection of fungi for making ink or fire lighting, learn the edible and toxic species, and maybe even find a tasty fungi treat together in the woods of Stoke Park or Oldbury Court.

You will learn some of the bizarre and unusual behaviours of fungi; from Puffballs to Parasols and Velvet Shank to the Scarlet Elf Cup, learn what makes fungi some of the most fascinating, beautiful and strange organisms to occupy our natural world. This is not a mushroom foraging course – this is much more than that; come along to learn all about the fascinating world of fungi.

Magic of Mushroom events can also be booked privately for team building, corporate events, family & friends groups, charities & organisations, and for adult education events – please contact
