Explore Beebe Woods with expert mushroom forager Tyler Akabane of Mushrooms for My Friends. Tyler will take you on a 60 minute walk through Beebe Woods and forage for mushrooms.
Taylor is owner of the Mushroom Shop in Somerville, MA where they specialize in culinary mushroom and other mushroom related items, including books (hunting, cooking and the like), fermented items, unique produce and one of a kind pantry items.
While working as a music teacher for students with special needs, Akabane prowled the woods after work for mushrooms. Sometimes he picked more than he could eat and offered them to local chefs. About 10 years ago the hobbyist was able to shift his passion into a full-time job when he joined mushroom legend Ben Maleson‘s wholesale business which supplies acclaimed Boston restaurants. But Akabane said he always dreamed of having his own shop, and the pandemic made it a reality.
Following your walk, our culinary instructor Michelle Itzkowitz will provide a demonstration and sampling of mushrooms on our porch.
Please dress and come prepared for a 60-90 minute walk.
