Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Ian Vair, local wild mushroom expert and chef, to lead this year’s last and possibly greatest mushroom foraging event. Hen of the Woods, Oysters, Blewits and Bears Head Tooth mushrooms will all be on the agenda. The experience will begin with education about safety, understanding field guides, types of fungus and the identification process. Culinary and medicinal applications will also be discussed. Join our last foraging adventure of 2019. Let’s finish the season with a giant yield of gourmet wild edible mushrooms! Pre-registration is required and costs $25. Please wear comfortable shoes for hiking the woods and sloping terrain. Bring a water bottle, insect repellent, and a bag for collecting your finds. For more information or to register, please call the GMALL office at (802) 867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.
