The Wild Side of Life is host to the annual UKI Medicinal Mushrooms Conference, and is also the training provider for the course Exploring the Healing Potential of Medicinal Mushrooms, which can be taken at 3 levels (beginner, intermediate, practitioner). 

For details of these please hover over the Medicinal Mushrooms tab above to make your selection.

We also offer occasional 2 day practical workshops in mushroom medicine making (but see the course above). There are no 2 day practical workshops scheduled for 2022 due to the possibility of coronavirus restrictions. We hope to resume these in 2023 when further details will be provided here.
