About the food circle

Elävä maa's goal is to develop organic farming and human-centered food distribution chains. Its organic food circle aims to access local products through deals with various producers, as well as a wider selection coming from wholesalers.

To join the food circle, you need to become a member of the Elävä maa association (register).

Get started by reading about the food circle's available clubs (Finnish only) in the Helsinki capital region and get familiar with the website's usage instructions in the "Briefly in English" section.

Note that the food circle's webshop is only in Finnish, as are many of the communication channels of Elävä maa. But as long as you understand Finnish product names, feel free to join us, and don't hesitate to ask for help if there's something you don't understand.

The weekly rotation of our food circle goes like this:

From Saturday to Sunday evening/night our webshop is open and members can make orders. An email is sent to members once it opens. (usually on Saturday).

On Wednesday evening at 18-20 members come and pick up their orders.
