Helsinki-day: Turntable 10 years & Blooming Urban Nature!

The 10th anniversary of Pasila Turntable will be celebrated in 2022!

The Turntable is an open citizen space and a greenhouse in the middle of Pasila which originated from a Helsinki Design Capital project.

On Helsinki Day 12.6. we are celebrating the first decade of the Turntable by opening an urban garden showroom; an educational experience designed by Dodo ry on urban gardening and growing utility plants. There, anyone, regardless of age, can learn about permaculture, meadow flowers, carbon sequestration and the importance of pollinators. The showroom will be open 24/7 after Helsinki Day, making the area an interesting adventure destination any time of the day.

During the Helsinki-day, there will also be a panel discussion on the biodiversity of urban nature, workshops, and live music. The waste food café serves delicacies made by Dodo volunteers.
