    Update on 2010 Show details:

    Mushroom experts speaking this year will include Paul Kroeger, Terry Taylor and Sharmin Gamiet. The famous tempura mushrooms are returning this year, plus wild and cultivated mushrooms and, new this year, a mycorrhizal mushroom table!

    All are welcome - please bring yourself, your family, your specimens for ID, and your ever-curious-about-fungi mind!

    whee!

    Is this a yearly event?

    Because if it is, I may try to time a B.C. forest visit with this in a few years.

    Yes, it's held every year in October, and for the past decade, possibly two, it has been in the same location. The date is booked well in advance, so please don't hesitate to contact the VMS at info@vanmyco.com at whatever point you are planning your schedule.

    It is an impressive event - huge mushroom display, great diversity of species & types of displays, lots of experts to talk with, tasty things to eat ... OK I'm starting to reiterate the event description, but it really is something not to be missed!
