Mushroom Foraging Foray 11th of June

Sat Jun 18, 09:00 - Sat Jun 18, 12:30
To be announced


 11 June

9am – 12.30pm


Join us for an exciting morning of mushroom hunting led by avid forager and author Justin Williams as we delve into the forest and green belts to learn all about the wild and wonderful world of mushrooms! We will be meeting early and begin with an educational and informative talk, followed by an exploratory foray into the forest.

Included: Mushroom foraging intro, walk and talk, a wildly delicious post-forage forest inspired picnic, follow up PDF notes and recipes.


Location: to be revealed to participants closer to the time.


Please bring: Participants will need to bring a basket, pocket/pen knife, rain coat (weather permitting) and outdoor-friendly shoes.


Please note: Mushroom foraging is unpredictable and can be abundant or fickle and very weather dependant. We could come upon a glut of wild mushrooms for everyone to collect or just happen upon two for toast. Rest assured you will walk away with a bounty of new found knowledge after this immersive experience.

Cost: R600 per adult, R250 for kids under 16, kids under 2 join for free.

Spaces are limited so book your place soon!


About your teacher: Originally hailing from Noordhoek, Justin Williams began his foraging journey under the pines in the 90’s at the old Tokai Forest. He is the author of the upcoming book Mushroom Hunting in South Africa (Briza Publications) and cites Edith Stephens as his mycological hero. Over time, Justin has worked with researchers to describe several new species of endemic fungi that were previously unknown to science, and, over the past decade, has trekked throughout most of South Africa searching for the tastiest mushrooms whilst making international appearances on The Food Network and CNN, featuring in print in Taste Magazine, Go! and Natural Medicine. Justin first joined Veld and Sea in 2016 and is excited to be teaching an objective approach to fungi and to share his love for cooking with them.
