Event description

Description

In October we’ll find ourselves in a new location - up in the Catoctin Mountains - looking for a creature that prefers a denser, older forest. Mushrooms have had a relationship with humans for eons and mushroom hunters are some of the most fabled folks in their communities. Samantha Feld of the Mushroomworks, will lead us on a mushroom foray in search of Maitake and other edibles from the fall season.


Teacher:

Samantha Feld is the owner operator of a small mushroom growing and foraging business in Baltimore,Maryland called The Mushroomworks. She became fascinated with mushrooms after a reishi patchsprouted in her backyard, and began to research the world of mycology. This re-awakened a life-long, but somehow forgotten love of the forest.

Sam is an avid forager, gardener, and has been studying the medicinal aspects of mushrooms and plants.
She has taken numerous workshops on mushroom identification, cultivation, and identification and uses
of wild and medicinal plants. She has also taught beginner edible mushroom identification for Charm
City Farms.

When not out in the woods or at the farmer’s market, she can be found teaching art in Baltimore City
Schools, in the studio making some art, or at home chilling with her teenaged son.
