Fungi are diverse, delicious and sometimes deadly. With interest in foraging for wild food on the rise, learning to accurately identify fungi reduces both poisoning risk to humans and harm to the environment.
Five years in the making, Wild Mushrooming brings together the knowledge and experience of ecologist and environmental photographer Alison Pouliot and mycologist Tom May. It is the first Australian field guide to document edible fungi and their toxic lookalike species.
In this talk Alison will share insights from over two decades of roaming the forests and working alongside scientists, foragers and mushroom inspectors across hemispheres. This unique opportunity to observe how mycological knowledge develops across cultures and ecologies has provided unique perspectives for the book.
Following the talk we’ll enjoy a delicious mushroom-inspired dinner.
Signed copies of Wild Mushrooming: A Guide for Foragers will be available at the talk.
This event is a fundraiser for Echidna House.
