Want to learn how to forage and cook wild herbs at the same time? Join us in forage and cook session in Mustikkamaa!

A wild herb workshop is an adventure in the local nature and during it you will learn about the healing effects and fascinating tastes of herbs growing in the wild. The workshop is a great way to learn about the nutritional factors, medicinal effects and biology of wild plants. During the workshop you’ll hear fascinating stories about folk traditions and the magical effects of the plants.

The workshop covers about 10-20 plants, depending on the location and the level of expertise of the group. After the workshop, participants will receive an e-book about wild herbs in Finland so they can continue their studies at home.
In Forage and Cook session, you will also get inspiration for how to use foraged herbs in home cooking.
First we walk around beautiful Mustikkamaa to gather delicious wild herbs in season, then we will try cooking with ourselves!

The foraging workshop includes:

• A beginner’s foraging walk to identify wild edible and medicinal plants
• Learning to identify and use the most common Finnish wild herbs & vegetables safely
• Learning about preserving plants – drying, blanching, and freezing
• Understanding everyman’s rights and the importance of sustainable foraging
• E-book about Finnish wild herbs and vegetables.
The workshop is hosted by Anna Nyman. Anna is a biologist and a certified wild food guide. She also studies herbalism and finished her studies in August 2022.
