Guided Mushroom Foraging Sessions

By Geoff Dann

I have been teaching members of the public to forage since 2010, and have been foraging for
mushrooms as a hobby for 25 years. I have to date found and eaten over 200 species of British
wild mushroom.

Email: geoffdann@hotmail.com
Mobile: 07964 569715
Website: www.geoffdann.co.uk

Organise your own group:

These sessions are held on public access land throughout southeast England, at a location of
your choice (I will make some suggestions.)

The aim is to teach you as much as possible about fungi that are of interest to foragers, and
I can either cook some of them up at the end of the session, or you can take some home with you
to experiment with cooking them yourself.

Nobody else offers this roaming, flexible mushroom-foraging tuition service.  Only via Wild
Mushrooms Online!

Booking as an individual:

In addition to the group bookings, I also run some dates that individuals can book places on. 
These are dependent on who contacts me and where they want to go foraging.  Please contact me
or visit my website for details.

I've yet to pick them and have left them in situ on dead Oak trees on the edged of mature, mixed woodland. Besides corectly identifying them, I

Found these today on a cliff top in Devon in shortish grass growing in large rings. I thought they were field mushrooms but having never picked them before, when I checked my books it appears field mushrooms donít grow anywhere near this size. Large caps are 18cm, scaly and thick. Stems are chunky a

Penny Bun on our lawn! Yes - definitely a first for us: although we've had the odd Horse Mushroom in our garden, along with non-edible species (Fly Agaric, Paxillus, Earthball, etc. etc.) this is our first home-grown Penny Bun. It's almost certainly in mycorhizal association with the birch tree wh

Hi, I find these quite regularly in woods near me - are they one of the trooping funnel types? I used Geoff's book for some idea but couldn't bring any home for closer inspection this time Sorry for poor pictures!
