The workshop will be led by KARMEN GAJŠEK (Where are the flowers?)

8. June, 16:00 - 20:00

On Saturday, 8 June, at 16:00, you are invited to a picking and cooking workshop with Prof. Karmen Gajšek, MSc. It will be about learning about the autochthonous alpine, pre-Alpine and other widespread flora in the glacial Bohinj valley. Information on usefulness, importance in the ecosystem, potential protection, use in the past, usefulness today. We will also collect widespread and non-endangered plant species and use them to prepare a lunch using only local and wild ingredients, without visiting shops.

The route will take you along the paths of the rich habitats of the Triglav National Park, discovering the preciousness of the natural environment itself. The workshop and all its contents will be an example of a local, healthy and environmentally friendly subsistence way of life.

Fascilitator KARMEN GAJŠEK (Where are the flowers?)

Karmen is a Master’s degree holder in Geography and Sociology, a forager and herbalist who, after years of intensive study of the ecosystem characteristics of the environment, has been working with wild edible and medicinal plants, which, due to their self-natural growth, contain on average much more vitamins, minerals and other bioactive components than cultivated food and can thus represent an important part of self-sufficiency. Karmen conducts foraging and other workshops and lectures all over Slovenia – to complete the circle (human-wildlife-natural production), and also stores plants as valuable products for everyday life, which are also available for purchase. It is about combining theory and practice to realise an environmentally and health-friendly way of life.
