Wild Mushroom Foraging Tours on the Mornington Peninsula. Autumn/Winter 2018

Join Reade Smith, Lead forager with Reade’s Weeds on a tour of a Mornington Peninsula Pine forest to learn how to identify wild mushrooms that will make your risotto the best you have ever made as well as which fungi you should avoid.

Guest foragers may also find some of the exotic and native weeds trendy chefs are seeking for their modern cuisine.

After the tour the group will share the days harvest with a BBQ-picnic lunch cooked on site.

We will nominate which pine forest close to the date to ensure there will be enough mushrooms for us to find. Don’t worry we will make sure it is easy to locate.

Bring a raincoat and waterproof shoes or gumboots just in case it gets wet.
