About the workshop
Jump into the fascinating world of mushrooms with us! This workshop focuses on how to harvest, grow, and prepare both wild and cultivated varities of mushrooms for eating. Explore the basics of wild mushroom identification, terminology, characteristics, and habitat. Understand the tools and techniques so that you can confidently forage and eat mushrooms like King Stropharia (Wine Cap), Oysters, Morels, Spring Porcini, and Prince Agaricus. Learn methods for how to grow your own mushrooms by creating a King Stropharia mushroom bed with us on-site, and watching a demonstration on how to innoculate logs for Oyster, Lion's Mane, and/or Shitake mushroom cultivation. Go home with an informational pamphlet with basics on foraging, growing, and eating mushrooms. Our goal is to demystify the mushroom, and empower you to be in a good relationship with this fascinating living organism.
About the instructor
Dan Parhaniemi - Born and raised in the Puget Sound, Dan spent much of his early life outdoors with friends and family. The fungal world soon captivated him, and his curiosity transitioned into an insatiable passion. His interest in mushrooms has since extended to plants, trees, and forest ecology. Dan is motivated to dive deeper into the newly realized world around him, one that had been around him all along, the interconnected world of fungi and our forests. Now almost a decade later, his passion for observing the intricacies of our natural world has expanded to inspiring others. Dan taps into the same awe and wonder that captivates and motivates him and uses it to provide a greater sense of connection and understanding of nature for others.
