Mushroom hunting courses, mushroom foraging weekends, short breaks, courses and holidays. Fungi identification courses, mycophagy weekends and holidays in the UK and abroad in France and throughout Europe.

To supplement your mushroom foraging course or holiday we'd like to introduce you to one of the very best mushroom reference sites on the web – a site created by Roger Phillips, author of one of the 'Bibles' of mushroom foraging, 'Mushrooms'. The site is based around this esteemed book and offers photos, descriptions and details of over 1,500 mushrooms and fungi, as well as a great collection of mushroom recipes. Also a brilliant iPhone app that works without an internet connection, so you can take his amazing collection of mushroom photos out with you on your foraging trips. It really is worth a look.
