Fungi + Flora + Forests + Food of Greece
October 15-24, 2019All day
Join Olga Tzogas from Smugtown Mushrooms as she takes you through the fantastic world of the mushrooms, fungi and flora of Greece. Over the past decade Olga has been returning to her ancestral homeland, to explore not just the ancient ruins of Greece but also the ancient mycelial networks present there. Come and learn about the relationships the locals have with certain species, their recipes and tips for finding them. Together we will experience the different bio-regions visited and the life that grows there during the fall months.
Allow me to bring you to my favorite ancient open air markets, hot springs, taverns, cafes, beaches and of course mushroom hunting spots! We will take a look at the rich natural history that defines this archaic country. We will visit a couple museums and folks will have free time to explore the urban & wild landscapes.
We'll walk on trails, stop along roadsides, so you can see mushrooms, birds, and wildflowers or rock formations, even butterflies and beetles. We want you to see what makes each area special, and enjoy a stimulating and well-planned retreat.
Come on our immersive trip!
