Mushroom Foraging BC: Fall
Fall Wild Edibles tours focus on how to SAFELY identify wild mushrooms like porcini, chanterelle, honey, wild oysters and dozens more edibles that you will never find in the grocery store! Our ever-popular “Wild Edible Identification Trips” are 2-hour trips that include a walk through BC’s forest to identify whatever we find and they book up fast!
Enjoy a chef-prepared wild light lunch with tips and tricks on how best to cook and preserve all the dozens of different wild edibles in the forests. (note: this is not a live cooking demo or a harvesting trip, ID only).
“We thoroughly enjoyed hunting for mushrooms on that glorious fall day. It feels good to know more and we are excited to keep learning. The lunch was extraordinary too!” –Andy from Burnaby
BC Living Magazine – On Tour: “I’m surprised – nay, delighted – at the shapes and sizes to be found in just this one patch of West Coast forest. Nature is amazing!”
The Globe & Mail – “Tour gives people one up on wild plant & fungi knowledge”
We start with an easy stroll in the forest, your wildcraft guide will show you how to identify different wild foods. We’ll tell you the secrets of how to cook them to make their unique flavours shine. There are tons of edible plants and mushrooms to discover in BC forests; a feast awaiting those who know its secrets. A lovely sandwich made with wild ingredients is included and a tisane(sun tea) with wild herbs.. Please note this is an identification only trip (no harvesting).
