Are you interested in learning to identify and utilize the super foods of Finnish nature? Ready to take your first steps in the forest and to learn some basic outdoor skills in a supportive, like-minded company to later utilize on your own? Carry on reading and register to our one day intensive course offering you the best startup package for knowing and utilizing the every man’s rights – in English!
Every man’s rights − opportunities and responsibilities when moving in nature in Finland
Basic outdoor skills (e.g. lighting the fire, proper gear)
How to utilize seasonal foods available in forest (e.g. what to cook of different berries)
Finnish forests are full of healthy foods that everyone can utilize if you just know the every man’s rights and have the necessary know-how to move in the woods responsibly, and to identify and use for example the berries and mushrooms the nature has to offer.
During the day you will learn the theory that will be put in practice by accomplishing practical assignments in the forest. And not to worry, your guide Farayi will be with you all the way helping when necessary.
The other half of the day will be used for learning some basic outdoor skills like lighting the fire, and getting useful information and tips for utilizing the seasonal foods available in forests. You will get to try out some of the foods in the bush kitchen, as we always combine the theory with practice.
In order to support individual learning as well as to protect the environment, we wish to keep the group size small. Maximum number of participants for this course is 10 people/3 families, so be quick and book your place soon.
