Living Skills: Wild Mushroom Hunt
From March till mid-May, it is time to go wild mushroom picking! This is the second PSN mushroom hunt in 2016 and the registrations are open to members only.
As we do every year, we will go to one of the State Forests beyond Blue Mountains, identify and collect edible mushrooms, then prepare a scrumptious lunch.
A mini-workshop on how to preserve the bounty will be run after the lunch. If you would like to pickle some of your harvest, bring a sterilised jar (100-200g size) with a twist-on lid.
Your guide will be Margaret Mossakowska.
WHAT TO BRING
Small knife, fork, eating bowl/plate, water, drinks (wine if you wish), and a perforated container for collected mushrooms (wicker or plastic baskets are the best). Be warned that we do pick a lot so don’t bring something too small.
Please wear good walking shoes and warm clothes, including rain gear.

We meet in Blackheath at 9 am, from where we will drive for about 1 hr to one of State Forests. A map with directions will be distributed in the week before the trip.
