Eatwild is teaming up with local mushroom expert John Colvin (JC) to go on a mushroom harvesting adventure this Spring. We are expecting a tremendous morel season. Last summer was a epic forest fire season, and morels show up in the burned off forests in the Spring.
Please join us for an all day adventure. We will hop on a bus and head for the mushroom grounds first thing in the morning. While on the bus, we will teach you about a mushroom identification and how to harvest mushroom sustainably. Once we get to our picking location, we will teach you how to orienteer around the picking areas, and we will show you techniques for finding mushrooms. Once everybody’s up to speed then we will wander around in guided groups looking for the prized morel mushrooms. You get to take home whatever you find. We will also cook up a few fresh mushrooms in the field.
The bus will leave from my house at 453 E. 31st at 8 AM. There’s ample parking on the south side of 31st avenue. I’ll have some coffee and tea ready for the road. We will try and be back by 6 PM.
