About Nick Phillips
Nick, who is accredited by the Association of Foragers, runs a gourmet mushroom farm (a fungarium) in North Chideock. Raised under the shadow of Colmers Hill, his grandmother would wander the hills of the area with her basket, which Nick uses today, and take her grandchildren with her on her forays. Nick has a special connection to the land here, living nearby and knowing the fields and woodlands like the back of his hand. His passion for foraging really took off 14 years ago whilst living in London, he would be out looking for all the finest and strangest mushrooms of the ancient woodlands of Epping, Penn woods and the South Downs.
Grown Up Mushrooms forage in line with the Association of Foragers’ code of ethics, only taking what is necessary and highlighting tips and tricks you can do to help the network spread.
Please Note: This event will be run outdoors so please bring appropriate clothing for wet or cold weather, sturdy footwear and we would recommend wearing long trousers to protect yourself from bites and ticks.
