Summer Fungi Foray in Grizedale Forest

Basket of fungiGrizedale Forest in the Lake District is home to a spectacular array of exciting wild mushrooms, due in part to the interesting mix of pine and hardwood tree species on the site along with stretches of rich unfertilised pastureland. The pace of this event will be gentle, and although the foraging part may last as long as three hours, there will be time for us to pause and fuel up on food and drinks. We will return to the main site to recap on our finds and get stuck into some delicious cooked mushrooms from our foray.
