What are we going to do

Gardening is good for the mind, body and soul, so I offer the opportunity to do it with me. Here you can do digging, planting potatoes, planting flower seeds, etc. After that, I will offer you a Karelian roast, with a recipe I have learned from my North Karelian parents. Along with it's the best Karelian pies in the area from the legendary Sorsa bakery. And if you are lucky, you meet also my old and brave sailor father. Here you can also have a sauna in a high-quality Finnish-style sauna with a Harvia heater. As a souvenir, I’ll send you a couple of photos of your visit.

About Adessa - the Doer

I have a strong North Karelian roots, although I was born in Helsinki. I moved here in December 2020 from metropolitan area suburban apartment building. Now I live in a 70s detached house with a yard and I enjoy all of this so much so I want to share that experience also with you. In my life I have traveled a lot, and have been interested in new people as well as cultures, so it’s nice to continue the encounters in my current hometown of Joensuu.
