Beginning at 10 am and concluding around 5/6 pm, we will be foraging in different fungal habitats, for example, woodlands of various kinds as well as grassland (exact locations will depend on the quality/quantity of available fungi I spot when doing a recce the day before).
In time, you’ll be able to book courses directly from this website. Until then, use the directory to find a course of interest and find the BOOK NOW button to take you to the appropriate 3rd party platform.
Gift vouchers available anytime
It isn’t necessary to choose a course date in advance – simply email, use the contact form or call and I’ll arrange it for you
Covid 19 course adjustments: All courses limited to 10 participants to allow for ease of maintaining personal space. Hand sanitizer and gloves available for use where appropriate. Full refund offered if courses cancelled due to change in government regulations.
Payment & Cancellations
In previous years I tried to be really laid back and flexible about payment times, methods and booking confirmations- what a mistake, what a hassle, what a bloody nightmare! This year then it’s the big bad grown up way so must apologise in advance if this seems ruthless and mean. It’s not meant to be!
Place or places on a course will be secured only upon advanced payment of their FULL cost. Payment is by cheque or bank transfer only*. You may cancel up to 1 month before the course date and receive a 100% refund. After that time cancellation will result in a complete loss of all deposits – without exception.
If I cancel a course at any point a full refund will be offered.
Should you need to cancel, when possible, and if desired, I will try to arrange an alternative date for you (provided you do not cancel in the month before the course)- often though that is only possible during the week.
Courses purchased as Christmas presents
For courses purchased this way, I fully understand that due to the surprise element of gift giving you may not be able to confirm a date you would like to book for until after Christmas. This is fine. However, A DATE WILL HAVE TO BE FINALISED BY THE END OF FEBRUARY. I’m not good at juggling (marbles) so 40 people wanting to keep their options open for as long as possible will simply result in me losing all my marbles! I know it seems harsh, but if you have not confirmed by END FEB you will lose 25% of your deposit and the rest will be returned to you.
When booking please can you make sure you give me a land line contact number, a mobile number, email address, and land address. Also it is important that you specify any food preferences, allergies or intolerances you or your friends may have. A BOOKING FORM WILL BE SENT TO YOU WHERE YOU CAN PUT DOWN SUCH INFORMATION.
On the day of the course ideally you should bring waterproofs – both top and bottoms, good walking boots and a spare pair of Wellington boots. For October and November courses an extra jumper or warm coat is useful for the outside meal in the evening. Actually, bring an extra jumper anyway. If it’s windy on the beach (not usually) it can bring the temperature down at any time of the year.
