FUNGAL FORAY & FOOD WITH FRIENDS
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.
A relaxed walk will highlight the beauty and necessity of fungi in the natural world with many tales to ponder and mysteries to unravel. The aim of this part of the day is on investigation and identification to fill your heads with fungi facts and information. Returning to the school you’ll be greeted with more refreshments, a warming cup of mushroom soup topped with truffle oil and chives. Then you will sit down to steaming bowls of wild mushroom and white wine risotto spiked with tarragon.
£35 per person, including tea, coffee, soft drinks, tutored walk and food.
Please note – this is an outdoor activity so please keep a watch on weather forecasts and dress accordingly. Refreshments and food are served indoors in the school hall.
