once upon a time last year, i went to mushroom foraging workshop at penrose state forest and belanglo state forest with some friends. it was a fun little adventure hosted by diego bonetto, nice views and walk to the forests and you get to bring baskets of mushrooms home - as many as you can find and carry really.
|one of the cute mushrooms we saw at first stop. poisonous, don't eat it.|
|diego explaining which mushrooms are poisonous, which are edible.|
|pine mushroom! this kind is what we're after.|
|sarah and daphne going colour coordinated.|
|they might not look pretty but they glow in the dark! not to be eaten.|
|jo on the hunt for shrooms.|
|look how much pine mushrooms this lady has gathered!|
|possibly the cutest i've seen during workshop. also poisonous!|
|another cute one, not to be eaten. anything that's cute and fairy tail like = poisonous.|
|delicious delicious pine mushrooms cooked for us at the end of workshop.|
|my basket and i. we ate pine mushrooms for about 3 days in a row i think.|
there are a few more other photos on my flickr. you should book your tour or workshop with diego if you are keen, i highly recommend this. i might check what other workshops diego has for myself this year too.
2015, i've got a good feeling about you. i wish you all happy new year!
