The 6th of February was the Sami National Day and we wanted to gather around the fire to celebrate. We wanted to continue our ongoing conversation about the new forms of community, making a camp site together at Hegli Sjølbergingsbruk (self-sufficiency farm).
“It’s fantastic that you come here, that you’re interested in seeing and learning. But,” Sidsel smiles and exclaims: “someone has to do this work every day. Who are they? And when will they come and do it?” We are gathered around the long wooden table in the wash house. Conversation is flowing, and the heat from the fireplace is melting our backs. Fresh baked bread from the oven, soup with freshly harvested vegetables, wine in our water glasses. It’s the day before the fall Get Away, and we, the Food Studio team, are at Hegli farm in Nannestad, a short hour from the capital city.
