Fungi Foray


*30th September & *15th October

Join us on our ever popular fungi workshops with the mycological maestro, Dr Keith Thomas. 

Dr Keith has a doctorate in microbiology and has worked with us on many other popular workshops. He is a fountain of knowledge and will show you around the Arboretum, introducing you to the world of fungi.

You will also join in an identification and microscopy session.

A deliciously light lunch is included.

Please wear appropriate footwear and outerwear for the weather conditions. You may also like to bring your own gardening gloves and a bag in which to collect your finds to take home.

We will endeavour to accommodate dietary requirements but do please give us 48 hours notice so that we can prepare your food.

Dogs are not permitted on this event (except assistance dogs).
