Learn how to safely identify & sustainably grow, harvest & preserve medicinal mushrooms & extract their medicine. Create your own wild mushroom ‘medicine cabinet' and inoculate your own log to take home & fruit in your garden for years to come.
During this full-day workshop, you’ll discover native, wild, medicinal mushrooms growing at 42 Acres and in the local South West area.
For the first half of the day, you’ll be heading out on a guided foraging walk; illuminating the incredible world of medicinal fungi that we commonly walk past. You'll learn the key features needed to safely identify each mushroom and where each is commonly found.
In the afternoon you will be creating your own wild mushroom ‘medicine cabinet.’ You will learn how to safely preserve your mushrooms and extract their medicine for use all year round, in yours and your loved ones lives - for a host of illness and preventative uses. This medicine is often very expensive and our shared vision is to support you to be able to do it yourself safely. Our intention is for you to feel empowered to harvest your own mushroom medicine cabinet and grow your own medicinal mushrooms.
You will also learn the ancient technique of mushroom inoculation - a highly sustainable method that mimics nature and produces mushrooms dense in nutrients that are hard to find from other food sources. Take home your own inoculated log - where it will fruit in your garden for years to come.
This workshop includes a tasty lunch from our "Soil to Gut" menu - you will eat food grown on the land you're walking. Wild teas will be provided throughout the session.
Our session will open with a guided meditation and a check-in, in the spirit of our vision to help ourselves attune to living in harmony with nature. We believe that connecting in this way encourages deeper connection and mindful working practices, for both us and the land.
This is a unique and hands-on day ideal for any fungi lover or wild medicine cabinet enthusiast!
After this workshop, you're welcome to stay and enjoy our ancient forest, regenerative gardens, and other agriwilding projects. Go for a wild swim or take out our rowing boat, canoes, or SUP boards. (Pls bring your own swimwear and towel).
