Foraging festival; guided workshop in Bohinj
The foraging is varied, nature-loving and participatory. And yet, our way of life is special. Find out how we, foragers live and discover what’s around you so you can live a more natural life yourself. Join us at the 1st Foraging Festival!
The workshop will take place partly in the Triglav National Park, where special rules apply to preserve the exceptional national and biodiversity. The workshop will take place along the northern side of the Črna Prst to Orožnova koča mountain hut and along the botanical trail above it. It is expected to take more than 2 hours. The workshop is also part of the International Wild Flower Festival.
