Fungal foray with food and friends. 26th October. 10am - 2pm £35.00

A relaxed walk will highlight the beauty and necessity of fungi in the natural world with many tales to ponder and mysteries to unravel.

Mary 0 81

Our fungal walks are a firm favourite on our seasonal calendar as the hugely knowledgeable Fungal Punk Dave takes you for a wander through the beautiful countryside around the school. You’ll be greeted with hot tea and coffee as you arrive, accompanied by a short introduction to mycelia before you depart on your gentle two and a half hour ramble. There are no guarantees but we will aim to identify in excess of forty species dependant on weather conditions in the run up to the walk.
