FAMILY MUSHROOM FORAGING TOUR
Sunday, October 14th from 13:00
Location: Schorndorf area (exact location published 1 week beforehand)
To RSVP with host Alex Elwin, use the pending Facebook event or contact form below – Prepayment deadline is September 30th

Autumn is mushroom season! But which are edible and which not? What is cauliflower fungus? Can one eat giant puffballs? Which fungi can be used as tinder? Fewer and fewer people these days are sure, so we’ve booked a guided walk through the Schwäbisch woods to learn everything there is to know on the subject with abenteuerreich Erlebnistouren.

During this unique event, an experienced guide will show us how to determine if a particular mushroom is edible, how to harvest it and also how to cook it. This 2-3 hour tour will also include a small tasting.

Although we will be greeted in English, most of this tour will be in German, so be prepared to work your brains, learn some new vocabulary, and have your kids or fellow members translate if necessary. Bring along worn-in walking shoes/boots, a waterproof jacket, a camera, a penknife, a small basket or other container, and a notebook and pen. We’ll find out the exact meeting place nearer the time.

Current IWCS members and their entire family are welcome to join this event and costs will be partially subsidized by the club. Children (up to age 13) are free and two adults or teenagers are invited to attend at the discount price of €25 per person. Additional adults are welcome to join but will pay full price (€39 per person).

We have reserved space for 15 adults and 5 children but can add more to this reservation up to 25 people total. If there is huge demand for this event we can open a second reservation for another group on the same day. To reserve your spot, please RSVP in the pending Facebook event or use the contact form below if you are not on Facebook.

To confirm your reservation, please transfer the  €25/€39 per person to the IWCS bank account no later than September 30th. If you have any extenuating circumstances that keep you from getting the funds to us by that date, please speak directly with the host so we don’t assume you are no longer interested.

Prepayments are non-refundable after the payment deadline. Members who have to cancel at the last minute are welcome to find another member or guest to send in their place.
