This webinar explores the most important UK fungi for mushroom foragers and enthusiasts to know.
The webinar is presented by Mark Williams of Galloway Wild Foods who has been exploring and teaching about fungi for 30 years, and specialises in making this often daunting subject fun and approachable.
The webinar covers:
- The UKs 10 most common species (which often make up over half of all the mushrooms you encounter) and how to identify them, with information on edibility
- The UK’s 5 most poisonous fungi species and how to identify them
- The UK’s 5 most abundant, tasty edible wild mushrooms, and how to find, identify, considerately harvest and use them
- Recommended resources
This webinar stands alone but is also intended as the third in a three part webinar series on fungi, along with:
- Webinar: Understanding Fungi – This event has now taken place, but a recording will be available soon
- Webinar – Wild Mushroom Identification
- This Webinar: 20 delicious, poisonous and common wild mushrooms you should know
This event is suitable for both novices and more experienced fungi enthusiasts who wish to connect more deeply with the subject.
The event lasts 1 hour, comprising 45 minutes webinar with live teaching, photographs and videos, plus a 15 minutes question and answer session at the end.
