About this event

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’. Learning the skills of drying and powdering mushrooms and making your own medicinal oil or honey to take home.

You will also learn how to inoculate your own mushroom logs and make your own dual extraction tincture; either from mushrooms found on our walk or from those previously gathered, depending on what we find and what is available.

A handful of our wild harvested native mushrooms.


What to Expect

  • Learn about the properties of Turkey Tail, Shiitake, Lions Mane and Artist Conk, which most are native strains to the UK and cultivated from the wild here at 42 Acres.
  • Be guided through the basics of drying, powering, making mushroom honey plus mushroom inoculation and dual extraction tinctures.
  • Learn more about 42 Acres wild tending principles and our exciting agri-wilding projects.

What is Included

This workshop includes a tasty lunch from our 42 Mile Menu - a wholesome mushroom and biodynamic vegetable broth bowl with wild greens and nourishing sweet treats. 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!
