Medicinal Mushrooms and Tincture Making

June 4 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm


Join us on this immersive workshop that will introduce you to the amazing world of Medicinal Mushrooms. In the morning we will spend some time discovering the fascinating medicinal value of mushrooms, as backed by science and a long history of traditional use. We will then have a tour of the mushroom farm before stopping to enjoy a mushroom themed lunch of pie and beer! After lunch there will be a detailed demonstration on how to make a variety of mushroom elixirs, including tinctures, powders and glycerites. You will also get samples to take home to help get you started on your mushroom journey! After the event you will receive an email with an information pack with links to the research cited on the day and a recommended reading list to help those interested in delving even further into the world of medicinal mushrooms!  Your hosts for the day are Urban Mushroom Farmer Terry Vaz from Hearty Growers and Registered Nutritional Therapist and Herbalist Sarah Hawkins from Fox & Hawk’s Botanicals.
