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.
much for introducing that simple magic into a new immigrant's
"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
