Medicinal mushroom day with Jesper Launder
Sunday 21st October
Meet outside Ashdown Forest centre, Colemans Hatch Rd, Forest Row, RH18 5JP
This is an immersive day event exploring the fascinating world of native medicinal fungi with herbalist and all-round wild mushroom nut Jesper Launder. The morning session sees us exploring local woodland for interesting fungi species, learning how to identify the common and important medicinal species, where to find them, and the basics of how to use them as medicines.
The afternoon offers the chance to extend our learning beyond the species found in the morning, including species-specific practical methods of preparing your own high grade medicinal mushroom extracts. There will be a chance for the group as a whole to partake in some of the processes involved and there will be scope for extensive Q & A to help cement the days learning.
