Duration
October, November
Month

Autumn is rich in colours, sounds and odours.

The first rains bring us beautiful mushrooms springing right out of the ground. The existing several species are a real gastronomic relic that whets everyone’s appetite. However, many of them are dangerous, even fatal, therefore, it is necessary to know them well. Picking mushrooms safely is the essence of mycology.

As you return to a state of intimacy with Nature, you will get in touch with the world of mushrooms, duly monitored by a mycology specialist who can answer all your questions.
