Training for Commercial Gatherers and Mycological Guides
The Mycoboutique offers customizable training for commercial mushroom gatherers and guides. Our trainers share with participants the unique expertise we acquired through the years, gathering, buying, selling, processing wild mushrooms on the one hand, and accompanying groups of apprentice foragers on excursions on the other. The participants learn when and where to find sought after species, methods and opportunities for distribution, quality standards, market values, food safety, first-aid principles so they can earn extra income.
The cost of the two day training session and the monitoring it involves is $300 per person and $2000 for organized groups of 10-20 participants. The training takes place at our office and includes a forest excursion (the third day). In the case of a group, the excursion site can be chosen by the client.
