We’re deep into the mushroom season in Coastal British Columbia, and today on our program we approach our topic Mushroom Foraging from several angles: Is it sustainable or ecological to harvest or buy wild mushrooms? Why do wild mushrooms cost more? Why can’t we just grow chanterelles and boletes on a mushroom farm? Finally, last month’s tragic mushroom poisoning death on Vancouver Island leads us to ask, are wild mushrooms safe to eat?
