Mushroom Walking with Catskill Fungi


I was lucky enough to attend a recent mushroom walk with the lively and knowledgeable John Michelotti of Catskill Fungi. You can find him, his services and his products at


Besides growing and foraging, crafting and selling his local medicinal products, John (pictured in the middle with the devilishly handsome grin) offers these walks at least once a month, with the goal of educating, sharing his knowledge, and introducing people to the basics of foraging and identification.


His  upcoming walks are September 13th and October 11th, in High Mount and Big Indian respectively. You can also find his products at various local farmers markets.
