Event description

Description

Ness Gardens on the Wirral is renowned for its dazzling displays of horticultural plants specimens and is a truly beautiful location. However, for this event, the agenda is fungi, particularly of the edible kind. The grounds of Ness are rich with mature trees, grassland and managed floral beds – a surprisingly rich habitat for finding fungi – so expect to find a wide array of poisonous, edible, and even incredible medicinal mushrooms. Last year’s foray found in excess of thirty excellent edible species! This popular course will introduce some helpful theory and key pointers for aiding correct identification of mushrooms, before we head out for some serious foraging. There will be more of the same after lunch before we finally head back to class to assess our finds and enjoy the delights of freshly harvested wild mushrooms cooked in a variety of ways.

Cost: £45 (includes buffet lunch and all hand-outs). The event runs from 9.30am – 4.30pm

Bookings MUST be made via Ness on 0151 795 6300 (please note a deposit is payable in advance to secure your place)
