Fern & Fungi is Alex Marchant and Sarah Lawless. We are foragers, wild food and medicine consultants, herbalists, naturalists, mushroom hunters and growers, wilderness educators, and former professional cooks who share a love of writing and teaching. We are located in the Ottawa Valley in Ontario, Canada where we live with our one and four year old sons in the small heritage town of Killaloe.
Our goal is to help people reconnect with wild nature by sharing our knowledge and experience online and at local workshops. We teach edible mushroom foraging and plant identification to the public, privately, and through the local school system. When we are able you may also find us at local farmers' markets with wild edible and medicinals we've foraged and processed.
