FORTUNA FOREST — FAIRYTALE PICNIC IN THE BRANDENBURG COUNTRYSIDE FEATURING LIVE MUSIC AND FORAGED FOOD
Urban life often has us daydreaming of rural escape: a charming picnic laid out on a long table, cozy blankets for lounging among the trees, the sun touching your skin. Accompanying all this is the hum of live music vibrating through the fresh air as you enjoy friendly conversation. No, you’re not in wonderland: this is what’s on offer at Fortuna Forestnext Saturday (28.05.2022) at Wehrmuehle Biesenthal in the Brandenburg countryside 50km north of Berlin. If there’s ever a place you’d want to teleport to, this would be it. The rural surroundings are where you will enjoy an outdoor feast of foraged seasonal and local produce including asparagus, nettle, wild garlic, fir, elderflower, goats cheese and pavlova. Oh, and all profits will be donated to Helping to Leave, an organization assisting those fleeing military conflicts, including in Ukraine. The acoustic picnic program includes a set from electronic musician Perila and a vinyl DJ set from Element to accompany you and your fellow diners. So venture into the forest, sit back and enjoy the rhythm and flavors of nature.
