Look-A-Likes & Mushroom Toxicity with BaltiSpore

May 6, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The ability to identify wild edibles is fun, but the knowledge of what toxic species exist in the area is essential. In this class, we’ll cover ID features of some of the deadliest mushrooms in our area and look-a-likes that can easily be misidentified with an untrained eye. We’ll also cover what to do if you accidentally consume a toxic mushroom and what precautions you can take to avoid fatal injury.


Meet your teacher, Harriet!

Harriet is one of the founders of Baltispore. They have a background in agriculture, IPM, and greenhouse growing. Harriett first got into mushrooms when they realized all of the potential medicinal effects they hold. When they’re not growing mushrooms and running markets for BaltiSpore they can be found foraging, skating with their local roller derby league, or gardening.
