Annual Mushroom Forage: Saturday, October 8, 2016

Golden chantrelles, white chantrelles, winter chantrelles, milky caps, pines, boletes -- yum!  An autumn's day tramping with baskets through the woods -- and a chance to cook them up with a glass of white wine.  All are welcome to join us.  Remember to bring rain gear, and that the day will almost inevitably involve some bushwacking.  The Rector will definitely not be in his cassock! Contact the office to find out the details.
