Hello, I’m jody, aka “Shaggy Jack.”

I began foraging for wild mushrooms when I moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2012 as a way to feed my family. I taught myself & my family how to identify dozens of interesting edible, medicinal & toxic species, and I now share my knowledge & skills with other people. My educational workshops offer a unique blend of forest biology, culinary arts & direct experiential foraging. I invite you to join me on my mushroom picking excursions & learn valuable skills you may carry with you for a lifetime.

Shaggy Jack’s Wild Mushrooms is a mushroom foraging and education enterprise located in Gibsons, on British Columbia’s beautiful Sunshine Coast. We provide locally foraged wild edible & medicinal mushrooms for restaurants & markets. Our primary mission is to educate people about the ecology of mushrooms and how to safely identify & sustainably harvest wild edible species through classroom presentations & educational forest foraging culinary adventure tours.
