About Johanna - the Doer

Ever since I was a little girl I enjoyed going mushroom hunting with my grandma. I always look forward to mushroom season to start. I love all different mushroom dishes especially when ingredients are self foraged. Beautiful chanterelles, porcinis, black trumpets and everything else. Having a little trouble breathing in the city - nature walks give my body and mind a refreshing break from mundane.

Requirements

Outdoor (forest) clothing and shoes. Be able to walk in forest for 1,5 hours.

It was an experience I could not do in my country and I really enjoyed picking mushrooms. Johanna and her husband are amazing ;) They have plenty of knowledge about mushrooms and I learned a lot from them. I would highly recommend to everyone! Kiitos :)

We had a fantastic afternoon with Johanna and her husband. They drove us out to some beautiful woods to go mushroom picking. It was clear that they were both very passionate and knowledgeable about the subject, and we could not recommend this experience more!!
Couldn't make it personally, but Johanna was highly agreeable and understanding of my predicament. Mushroom picking is great though, and I'd highly recommend any and all people to acquaint themselves with the sport. That said, this would be an opportune avenue for doing just that. :)
Johanna, I really enjoyed my experience with you and hunting for mushrooms. As a person with pretty limited knowledge of mushrooms a laminated card (that is used during the experience) with the common mushrooms would be super helpful in identifying them and giving participants confidence in what to look for.
What a beautiful afternoon to spend in the forest! Fresh air and good company, really nice event even though my basket was still empty when returning to car.
