עודכן ב: 15 יונ 2020

This is my second year of guiding mushroom gathering tours to the general public, and over 1500 people have already been through my activities, the hope, perhaps prophetic, I had about two years ago that people would be interested in mushrooming was largely due to my personal interest in the field, It was really unclear what it was based on...


Geastrum saccatum - It is hard to ignore the uniqueness of its aesthetic.

So what is the secret of this magic and why are people so passionate about mushrooms?


I don't think there is one answer, I think every person you ask will give you a different answer, but many people will say that they like mushrooms, or are curious about mushrooms, or really love them. In any case, they obviously have an attraction that is not always explained.


In my opinion, We are attracted to mushrooms because we feel they have something to give us.

I don't think we are attracted to Champignon mushrooms at food stores because they are so delicious; they are not that tasty, They are certainly different and provide us with an experience different from eating any other food, but our tremendous attraction to this kingdom is for other reasons. In my humble opinion, it's because we know that they hide a content that can actually change our lives, or as mushroom thinkers say They can fix the world we live in.
