Author Talk | Mushrooming: The Joy of the Quiet Hunt with Diane Borsato
By Toronto Botanical Garden

Walk along with artist/educator Diane Borsato to discover how mushrooming can radically expand our perspectives, and connect us with nature.

In this illustrated talk about her book, Mushrooming: The Joy of the Quiet Hunt, Diane will share insights, anecdotes and information on foraging and edibility, mushrooms in contemporary art, and how the ‘quiet hunt’ helps us to connect to nature with greater intimacy, and intelligence. This fun and magical topic will appeal to everyone from beginner mushroomers to advanced mycophiles.

A delightful, eclectic and enjoyable tour of mushrooms and their place in our world…This is a book that isn’t afraid to mix the personal with the practical and will thrill many readers because of that.” – Tristan Gooley, author of The Natural Navigator
