Wild Mushroom Foraging Workshop #1

Sunday, July 25 from 10:00am – 1:00pm at Southern Vermont Arts Center

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Ian Vair to lead us on a wild mushroom journey. Ian will guide us through the wooded trails at the Southern Vermont Arts Center and will explain safety parameters, field guide comprehension, ideal growing conditions, and identifying factors. Functional uses including culinary recipes, extraction methods, and medicinal qualities will be discussed. Wear comfortable shoes for hiking in the woods. Some of the forest exploration will go off trail with some rocky and rolling terrain. Bring a water bottle, insect spray and a bag or basket for collecting edible finds. We will meet in the parking lot promptly at 10 am. Space is limited; pre-registration is required and costs $25. For more information or to register, please call the GMALL office at (802) 867-0111 or visit
