The Association of British Fungus Groups

Axminster, Devon - United Kingdom

The Association of British Fungus Groups, ABFG was founded in 1996 by Michael Jordan, the writer and presenter of the series who is also author of books on fungi including the Encyclopedia of Fungi of Britain and Europe. The Association is committed to bringing more people into amateur mushroom hunting. he ABFG is also closely involved with conservation. We work with Plantlife International and the Fungus Conservation Forum and with other organisations. The ABFG has been involved in the preparation of the Conservation of Wild Mushrooms Code of Practice and in current conservation programmes. We are committed to the sponsorship of new recording groups and to encouraging people of all ages and experience into amateur mycology as the way forward for the future.

As an organisation we serve local groups but despite its title the ABFG is based on individual membership for anyone who wants to explore the world of fungi whether on their own or as part of a group of like-minded people. We look after many of the interests of foray groups in the United Kingdom, including free inclusion in our Public Liability Insurance cover as an ABFG membership benefit. Our aim is to support amateur enthusiasts at all stages of the 'learning curve' in their foraying and other activities concerned with fungi.
