We had a full house for the mushroom class Finding and Foraging Edible Fungi at the Beacon Food Forest. The weather held out and we had a great time navigating the wonders of the edible understory. Here are a few pics from the day. We can't wait to partner with Beacon Food Forest on our next class. Stay tuned, there will be more offerings soon!
I wanted to invite you all to join me at the Beacon Food Forest for my upcoming class on Finding and Foraging Edible Fungi, but it has already sold out!

Presenter Jake Harris is an enthusiastic mushroom ambassador, and loves sharing the joys of finding and eating fruiting fungus. In this 2.5 hour course we will talk for a bit about mushroom ID, how to start mushrooms at home, and how to find safe edible mushrooms in the pacific NW.
For the workshop part of the course we will get our hands dirty learning about how to identify chanterelles, hedgehogs, morels, boletus and many more, and learn how to grown your own tasty wine cap, oysters, shiitakes, lions mane, shaggy mane mushrooms. We will explore mycellial networks at Beacon Food Forest, and share some time hearing about facts, habitats, uses and recipes.
Regardless, if you haven't checked out the awesomeness that is the Beacon Food Forest Permaculture Project, go and take a look. It is a wonderful, edible space where you can stroll through and eat organic fruits, veggies, and herbs. What's not to love?!
They also have volunteer opportunities, so grab your gloves, roll up your sleeves, and lend a hand!
