Having the eye of an eagle, he roams the forests with his gaze riveted to the ground in search of hidden wonders. His treasures are not precious stones, but mushrooms! An amateur mycologist, Louis is passionate about gourmet mushrooms and dreams of domesticating his favorite wild species. At the nursery, this chemist by training produces mycelium (the vegetative body of mushrooms!) to incorporate into our food gardens. In the fall, when the harvesting season slows down, his extensive knowledge of the undergrowth helps us to find varieties of fruits and nuts of exceptional quality! Come and meet Louis at one of our training sessions or at one of our mushroom sales points!
Louis' favorite mushroom: Maitake (Grifola Frondosa)
