"Diego,
I absolutely loved Sunday's Mushroom Trip :)
I was an avid wild-crafter back in my homeland, Michigan and have deeply missed that sense of connection since moving to Australia a few months ago. 
Thank-you so much for introducing that simple magic into a new immigrant's life."
Felecia, 2012



"We really enjoyed our visit to the Penrose and the Belanglo forests and learning about which mushrooms we could pick. I especially appreciated your generosity with your knowledge, and that you acknowledged the communal and cultural roots of the practice.
We shared most of the mushrooms we picked with work colleagues; and we kept a little for ourselves and made them into a delicious ragout."Robyn, 2012
