Nouseva Vesi (FI)

Nouseva Vesi/Rising Tide: “We are a team of people who are passionate about gathering and growing our own food. Our mission is to build a network of self-sufficient communities that grow, gather and preserve their own nutrients in Finland, and at the same time making this food available to the public through a catering service. The food we prepare and serve is not only food; it’s a process and an artwork where the principals of self-sufficiency and circular economy are central. It’s a preservation of the food traditions of the North and the Sami culture, i’s a way of reconnecting people to nature. We want to tell a story through our food, and make the consumers aware of the process of gathering, growing and preparing the nutrients that they eat.”
