Description: Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Ian Vair, local wild mushroom expert and chef, to lead this workshop. Hen of the Woods, Giant Puffballs, Oysters, Blewits and Lions Mane mushrooms will all be on the list of possible finds. “Pound for pound my best yielding months are always September and October.” Ian will begin the foraging adventure with a discussion focusing on safety, understanding field guides, types of fungus and the identification process. Join our workshop to gain knowledge, skills, friends and a memorable experience! Pre-registration is required and costs $25. Please wear comfortable shoes for hiking the woods and sloping terrain. Bring a water bottle, insect repellent, and a bag for collecting your finds. For more information or to register, please call the GMALL office at (802) 867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.
