Local Mushroom & Plant Walk - February
Join us for a morning in the mountains of Topanga as we learn to identify Jack O' Lantern mushrooms & how you we can use them to dye fabric! We will also be identifying other mushrooms and native natural dye plants that grow here in the Santa Monica mountains.
Brando Farr is a Topanga Local mushroom forager and chef that seeks to connect community with the spirit and medicine of ecology! He is full of knowledge and will guide us through the mountains as we learn all about Jack O' lantern mushrooms & other local species
Allie & Sarah of Rooted Botanics will contribute with teaching the process of dyeing with Jack O' lantern mushrooms! They will be bringing examples and swatches & walking students through the process so they can better understand magic of this special local mushroom. They will also identify other native plants that can be used for dyeing! They will be bringing along their swatch journal with all the recipes and notes from experimentations with the native plants here Topanga.
Spend a few hours with us on a beautiful walk in the vibrant green mountains as we chat and learn as a group!
