Amos Rex opened late summer and autumn tree planting events in Helsinki, on Saturday 28.8.2021, which is Finnish Nature Day, and thus a great day to celebrate the importance of nature in Finnish culture. All members of the public were invited to pick up their own – free – tree seedlings from outside the Amos Rex art museum.
The event was held as a part of the Farmers’Market. In addition to the popular apple and honey producers from Söderlångvik Manor, the Farmers’ Market offers a range of artisan delicacies from Kemiönsaari's small food producers – from award-winning jams and bread to fresh vegetables. The Art and Personal History Museum at Söderlångvik Manor served as the summer paradise of Amos Anderson (1878-1961) for more than thirty years. Some of the trees were also planted by the team from Amos Rex art museum to the forest near Söderlångvik Manor.
