It's Fall time again and that means mushroom foraging and the cornucopia of all the fruits of the earth.
This year we have designed a series of Foraging Workshops scheduled for Sundays in October. We are aiming for affordability and flexibility, so you may elect to attend one workshop or come to them all, and payment is on a sliding scale.
Workshop 1: Into the Wild; Cautions, Encouragements, and Equipment October 12th (FULLY BOOKED)
Workshop 2: Roots, Shoots and Fungi, October 19th (FULLY BOOKED)
Workshop 3: Mushrooms and Preserving Wild Nutrition, October 26th (WAIT LIST)
Seats are very limited, so in order to secure your place, please pre-purchase via pay pal at the bottom of the page, or in person through MuseumEats facilitators: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the 12th and 19th are fully booked :-)
Who: Camille Flanjak is the Executive Forager for Exile Bistro and a wild foods consultant with MuseumEats. She studies permaculture and has been obsessed with mycology since she was a 'tween.
What: Hands-on, all-day foraging workshops that happen on Sundays in October, rain or shine.*
Where: Meet ups and drop offs are in East Van.
When: Meet before 10am to carpool to our secret foraging spots (driving time may be up to 90 mins). Potluck-style lunch around 1:30 with snacks in between. We aim to arrive back in East Van by 6pm.**
Cost: $30-60 sliding scale. In order to scrape even with materials and transportation, the minimum cost per person per Sunday is $30.
Every workshop you'll be going home with a tincture, wild herbs, vegetables, greens, and/or mushrooms. We like to call this extra bit the 'grab bag' from the wild party.

*Please come appropriately dressed- gumboots and parkas are encouraged on rainy days.
**If you aren't able to bring anything to share for the potluck don't worry. Also, we welcome all kinds of food so if you have any allergies please share this information with facilitators ahead of time.
Since all of our workshops are full, we are limiting registration to a waitlist. If you are still interested in the October 26th workshop, please email email@example.com.
