Details:
The hunt is on! Autumn is the wild edible mushroom picking season in cool climate pine forests around Sydney.

Joining a guided mushroom foraging tour with an experienced forager is a great opportunity to learn how to find, pick and process wild edible mushrooms.

We meet at Hampton beyond the Blue Mountains and from there go to pine forests along Jenolan Cave Road to harvest wild mushrooms. Your guide will teach you how to safely recognise and pick them, and run a safety check of your basket.

Also included in the ticket price are:

* fresh barbecue lunch from the day's bounty
* mini-workshop on preserving mushrooms: a great opportunity to learn about cleaning, drying, pickling and fermenting
* fact sheet about the two species of mushrooms we will be looking for (emailed after you book your ticket)
* recipes for preserving

You will return home not only with what you found, but also with confidence to safely recognise two varieties of wild edible mushrooms and knowledge about how to preserve them.

This year you can choose from two travel options:

* Drive yourself to the meeting place which is the ticketed option (children under 12 only $5 for lunch, paid in cash on the day)
* Minibus pick-up from Katoomba and Blackheath for additional $30 per person. If you are interested, after registering please email to arrange a bus ticket (please note only children over 8 years old on the bus)
Location:
Hampton, NSW
