Pick Nic

-What is this?
-It´s a PICK NIC!
L, 10 years.

But not a conventional picnic. It pops up in Gothenburg's parks, playgrounds and schoolyards and invites to an exploration of the plants around. Can plants be food even in the city? What can you craft out of them, how can you use them for play?

It is a blog combined with a mobile foraging station, which provides the tools to cook, craft and experiment with the plants on site. In this way some aspects of the role that plants play for humans can be experienced by children, but also surrounding adults, in their own environment. New stories about how people and plants interact in Gothenburg emerge.
