Cap-tivate your curiosity and shiitake yourself to an evening of fungi, foraging and folk tales.

Learn to hunt and identify mushrooms in our practice foraging zone. Dig into talks from experts in the world of fungi, pull up a toadstool for some hands-on activities, immerse yourself in creating some mycelium art, relax at the bar and enjoy some beats from our DJ!
