Fungi Families & Mini-Hunt with Forage Culture

April 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is a great starting point for folks who need a basic understanding of the differences between plant & fungi kingdom, but who don’t want to be overwhelmed with too much terminology! If you’ve only ever seen white button or portobello mushrooms up close, you’ll enjoy this easy-to-understand overview of how mushrooms can be grouped complete with interactive portions designed to provide multiple levels of learning!

In this virtual event, you’ll learn about:

-The vital differences between fungi & plant kingdoms

-The”Foolproof Four” edible wild mushrooms, and why they’re not exactly foolproof

-How to identify popular mushrooms in season right now (like morels and oyster mushrooms)

Plus, we’ll take you on a virtual hunt so that you can better understand the locations, surroundings, and environment necessary for those particular mushrooms to exist. No experience required for this fun and engaging class!



About the Speaker

Elizabeth Davidson was born into a strong connection to nature, cooking & teaching through her father, a grape farmer & physicist, and mother, an avid gardener and collegiate professor in multiple subjects. Her parents always emphasized strong foundations and healthy caution, and that’s the legacy she continues. Her introductory classes on approaching nature and foraging are based in universal teaching techniques with a strong emphasis on repetition, and her cooking style is elevated-home-chef-with-no-time-but-healthy. And delicious. She drinks foraged tea everyday, loves crispy oyster mushrooms and spent 12 years as a full-time professional ballroom dance instructor to adults. Visit for more information.
