About Tuomas - the Doer

I guide to nature and environment topics during tours, workshops and lectures. I'm an environmental biologist and biology/geography teacher. Wild herbs, mushrooms, ecology, environmental awareness and wondering in nature are my passions.

Nature means adventure, taking care of the world and joy of sharing. My strengths are enthusiasm, gratitude and respect; they work as fuel for my competence.

The whole thing started on 2014, at Nature house Villa Elfvik in Espoo, where I was on an internship, working as a guide. There I experienced something unbelievable; During a fairy tale tour in which I was guiding, we got enchanted by mistake of nature's marvels and the magical creatures in the fairy tale so much that we almost started seeing them! There I realized the power of immersive experience of nature, if you are able to listen and guide gently but firmly.

Relation to nature is like relation to ourselves. There we come from, that we are. Why wouldn't we want to take good care of ourselves and learn to know it. Nature is a tool to that target with its all diversity, whether it's a mushroom tour or a lecture of some environmental topic.

I work as a guide towards the source of interesting things in nature. Nature is the marvel and I am the guide there. So join the adventure, to learn mushroom identification, wild herb foraging, enjoy good company and share your story while wondering in forest.
