Event Location:

Luukki Nature reserve

Join us for a wild mushroom foraging tour at Luukki Nature Reserve! This early autumn workshop will introduce wild mushrooms in Finland. No previous knowledge of mushrooms is required!

Biologist Anna Nyman of “Foraging in Finland” will be our guide. The foraging 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)

– 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.
