The exciting time of the year has come! Join us for a wild mushroom foraging tour at Luukki Nature Reserve.  The first autumn foraging workshop of the year will invite you Finnish mushroom foraging culture. No previous knowledge is required.

Biologist Anna Nyman of “Foraging in Finland” will be our guide, and you will be introduced to the most common wild mushrooms in Finland.  The workshop will be held in English (and Finnish mushroom names!) and includes:

• A beginner’s foraging walk to identify wild edible mushrooms
• Introducing the local ecology and nature around Helsinki
• Learning terrain where mushrooms grow
• Leaning to identify and safely use the most common Finnish wild mushrooms
• Learning about preserving mushrooms, including drying and freezing
• Understanding everyman’s rights and the importance of sustainable foraging
• E-book about Finnish wild mushrooms in Finland (in English; available in Finnish)
Time & Date: 10:00 on Saturday, 26  August
Workshop fee: €20 for Slow Food members, €40 for non-members
NOTE: As we will be foraging away from the main paths, the workshop is not suitable for prams or strollers or for young children.
The availability of mushrooms depends on the weather conditions of autumn and varies in different terrains.
