The more she found out about her great-great-grandfathers profession the more fascinated Rita Goller was of edible snails (helix pomatia) and of the old trade of her ancestors. Between 40 000 and 50 000 snails live in her “snail garden” in Rietheim In ihrem Schneckengarten in Rietheim. To raise edible snails in a species-appropriate and sustainable way takes four to five years.

Rita Goller is also an “Albguide”. To find out the dates of her next guided tours of the biosphere reserve and of her “snail garden” check out Rita Goller’s website.
