Mushroom Afternoon: Sat Nov 8

Please join us for a Mushroom Afternoon, Saturday November the 8th, 3:30 - 5 pm at the Ag Hall.

Bring down some of your favourite fun-guy friends and we will lay out your discoveries and strive to identify them. There will be prizes for Largest Mushroom and the Most Variety.

Specimens will be easier to identify with an accompanying spore print. Simply place your mushroom cap (one that isn't too old) on a piece of white paper. The spores dropping from the underside of the cap will land on the paper displaying it's colour. If you suspect light coloured spores place your the cap on a black or dark piece of paper.

We will provide resources, talks, and examples of mushroom growing, cooking, and preserving as well as a few short videos on the mighty mushroom. So come down and celebrate the secretive mycelium.

For further information please contact Helen O'Brian heleno@rogers.com.
