Guests will meet the Host at a central location. This may or may not be at the foraging location. If needed the Host will shuttle guests to the foraged location. Each guest will be outfitted with the proper mushroom foraging tools and given a detailed explanation of what each piece of equipment is used for and how it is to be used. Guests will learn how to identify and recognize a few different species of wild mushrooms and have hands on experience learning about mycology and how to forage for wild mushrooms.

Since there are thousands of species of mushrooms and fungi, only safe and edible mushrooms will be collected and learned about during this experience. Guests will spend 60-90min on a guided forage walking through mixed terrain in search of wild mushrooms. Once the experience is finished, the group will ensure we "leave no trace" and return back to the rendezvous where guests can provide feedback and be given the opportunity to purchase dried mushrooms previously foraged locally. (Mushroom Hunting is a very seasonal and temperamental activity, guests should be aware there is a small chance that fresh edible mushrooms may not be discovered during their experience however the Host guarantees that wild edible mushrooms will be integrated into the whole experience as well as a fulfilling learning experience!)
Other things to note
The guide will provide resources to help identify common edible mushrooms via literature and photos. There's a chance that not every foraging experience will result in edible mushrooms but be prepared to have a full day of learning and experiencing the outdoors!

Melba has spent years learning to forage since early childhood. As a young adult she spent 6 weeks training as a Survival Instructor as a member of the Royal Canadian Air Cadet. Her extensive experience in outdoor survival and camping resulted her in being selected out of 4000 applicants for the Woods Canada Dream Job in 2015. This is where she spent 5 months show casing the outdoor brand to Canadians from coast to coast and creating outdoor cooking and outdoor experience content such as a paddling and climbing and outdoor tips. She started learning about mushroom hunting from a professional mycologist and has since shared her passion and expertise on how to forage edible mushrooms with her community. Melba’s outdoor edible passion roots from her love of culinary arts and desire to create traditional and unconventional dishes.

I got exactly what I was looking for with this foraging course. Melba does her best to give some foundational skills to start to enguage and look for mushrooms. She also pointed me in the direction of what resources and tools to look at to further my learning.

This excursion was informative, interesting, well thought out and Melba's knowledge and passion for the subject made for a really great trip. We're all now hooked on foraging and feel like we have enough basic knowledge to get us going with this hobby. Lovely teacher, beautiful location, and the most delicious tea and soup. Thank-you!
