Mushroom Workshop!!!

by Heather in BC

Wednesday, October 24th at the Roberts Creek Hall
11am – 1pm: Explore the World of Mushrooms with Stephen Murphy

Stephen, a mushroom enthusiast, will take you on a tour of the mushroom world. The last time we held this class the students were amazed at the complexity of the Mushroom kingdom. We will learn to read a mushroom key, discover spore prints and basic identification of the more common species. We will cook up a few of these tasty delights if the rains have done their work and then try them out. Bring your questions and be inspired by the mushrooms that grow all around us.

Class fee is $10 – Please pre-register for this event by emailing justin@onestraw.ca

Presented by the Live and Learn Program of One Straw Society and the Farm Gate Market
Funded by Vancouver Coastal Health SMARTFund
