Wild Mushroom Foray with John Wright

17 October @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Moon Down are pleased to welcome John Wright, an acknowledged expert and author in foraging for wild food.
John runs foraging courses at River Cottage in South East Devon and on the New Forest, so we are especially pleased that John has now run mushroom foraging courses for us in the South East for over 11 years.

This course is instructional and educational where you will learn about fungi, edible and non-edible, what type of areas you will find different species and the unique properties of fungi.

You will understand how to forage responsibly and safely, only picking what you need. On our forays we take just two baskets for the entire group – one for edible finds and the other for interesting discoveries. We never pick anything rare but we hope to pick enough edible species to fry up later in the day so everyone can have a taster.

A typical day’s programme to include all refreshments, a substantial 3-course lunch with wine & Afternoon Tea

10.00am Meet at Moon Down – Tea/Coffee & biscuits
10.30am Let the foraging begin!

1.30pm. Jo, from Naked & Ready will prepare a delicious 3-course lunch, which will hopefully include some of the morning’s foraged mushrooms. Lunch will be served with wine.

2.30pm An afternoon of foraging.
4.00pm Time to take a closer look at the morning’s finds with John followed by a Q&A session.
Accompanied by Afternoon Tea with homemade cake.
5.00pm Time to go home…
