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.

Visit Shaggy Jack’s store on the lower market level of the Gibsons Public Market.

At FORIJ, we believe in the power and beauty of mushrooms.

We feel there is nothing quite as satisfying as watching mushrooms pin, expand, and grow into beautiful fruiting bodies. Our mission is to make fungi education, cultivation, and medicine more accessible for all.
