Upcoming Workshop: Chaga Foraging January 2020

Have you heard tales about a Tinder Fungus, or Miracle Tea? Do you want to learn more about chaga and the benefits this unassuming “blight” has?

Chaga doesn’t look nor sound appealing, but it can be used for many ailments, replace your coffee regime, and also as a fire starter–– even when wet.

Sound all over the place? That’s because this particular fungus–– that isn’t really a fungus at all, is truly amazing. But more on that later!

Join Alyssa on a snowshoe or hike (you decide!) to learn more about where to find chaga, how to sustainably harvest it and much more. Of course what you harvest is yours to take home.

You won’t just be searching for it, while we hunt chaga, some will be brewing for us on the outdoor cookstove.

Hot chilli and buns will be served to warm us after our walk through the woods.

Difficulty Level:

Easy. Mobility is required and some terrain may be challenging depending on ice/snow, however we will do our best to accommodate you with any obstacles you may encounter.

What to bring:

Warm winter clothing, camera, snowshoes if you prefer, and a field book if you enjoy taking notes. Small reusable bag or backpack to take your chaga home.

Location:

South end of Algonquin Park. More details to follow.

Price:

TBD

Date and Time:

January 2020

Date TBD

Length: 2-4 hours

*notify Alyssa of any allergies as coffee, snacks and chilli will be served*
