MUSHROOM FESTIVAL private class / event
Choose to host our deluxe combination event, the “Mushroom Festival”. This awesome 3.5-hour immersion course consists of a 1-hour slideshow class, a 90-minute guided walk class, and then the finale: a delicious cooking demonstration! Ryan and Emily bring wild mushrooms along, just in case…but usually we cook what we find during the guided walk that day.
Mushroom Festivals can stand alone as fun mushroom class events, but they also provide a great basis for birthdays, family reunions, or company parties. Individual people have enjoyed these events alone as well—a very focused class. At other times it ends up being quite a party. Be sure to let us know how many students to expect! Our mushroom guidebook will also be available for purchase at the event. A Mushroom Festival can be planned to take place anywhere: at a spacious retreat center, under a pop-up canopy in a field, or in your own living room and kitchen.
Fee: $360. This covers up to 6 students; if more than 6 people attend, add $20 to the fee for each extra person. So for example, for 7 people the fee would be $380 total. With some exceptions, thirty people is generally the class size limit for this type of event. Choose a day between mid-May and mid-November.
Private class Gift Certificates are available; the recipient contacts us to schedule their own class day and time. Check out the SHOP tab above.
Ponchos are good to have—drizzle or light rain shouldn’t stop us! And the mushrooms love it. A true rainstorm, of course, would force us to reschedule. There is no penalty for cancelation due to weather, or for canceling in general. (But obviously, tell us as soon as possible if you must cancel or reschedule your class for some reason).
