The Picture of Nature with Anu Tossavainen
Where do humans stand in the picture of nature? This is the question we delve into with Finnish forager and teacher Anu Tossavainen. In this wide-ranging discussion, we talk about conscious teaching, wild food as a business, the mushroom and berry seasons in the UK and Finland, and why reindeer are moving south.
We are happy to present this episode - after celebrating the WorldWild Podcast's one-year anniversary! For that reason, it seems appropriate to quote from podcast #1 with Sam Thayer: 'We only care for what we love, and we only love what we know'. Pull up a chair and get to know Finnish Lapland with Anu...
'It's not just knowledge, it's a sense of nature'

About the show
We offer a series of conversations to tap into the wildness within ourselves and to uncover what is possible when we do. It is our hope that through the WorldWild Podcast we can contribute to the revitalisation of wild food culture and conversation around the world.
Through people who know their landscapes intimately, we gather the threads to weave a rich tapestry. Piece by piece the vision of a wilder world comes into view. The wild embrace of nature welcomes us back and offers us a seat at the table. A feast, no less!
