About your host

I've been harvesting and cooking wild edibles since I was a child and have written articles and booklets focused on finding and identifying common edible mushrooms in the northeast. Having lived in Vermont all my life I've accumulated plenty of good spots for foraging and am in tune with what grows where, when. I also am an Airbnb host! Stay with our family in Hartland as part of your experience…

What we’ll do

Finding wild mushrooms is a dynamic challenge. We'll start with an overview of what species should be fruiting at the time, as well as learning about environmental indicators (symbiotic trees and plants) and in what kind of places they are likely to be found. With that we'll head off into the forest and fields with baskets and knives. We'll spend as many hours as there are mushrooms gathering…
