Ingvill Buen Garnås is a facilitator at the center, and she willingly imparts knowledge about species-rich meadows, lush stands of rowan trees, cultural heritage, and other cultural landmarks in the landscape. She is also a folk singer and often spices up her presentations with songs and storytelling traditions that naturally fit into the context. Both the historical and future-oriented values of the diverse, vibrant agricultural landscape are central to the communication at the Cultural Landscape Center. Ingvill has extensive experience as a communicator and speaks a language that reaches both professionals and the general public.

The road through the villages of Hjartdal, Svartdal, and Flatdal is called Sogevegen (Landlore Lane). This is because the area is exceptionally rich in stories, meaning narratives about the landscape and lived lives, nature, and superstitions. The peasant uprising in 1540 and later all the folklorists and artists who came to the area are also unique and exciting stories from this part of Telemark. At the Cultural Landscape Center, you can hear a little about everything or choose for yourself what you want to hear the most about. The center also often involves local talents, like Olav Tho, with all his knowledge of foliage and local history in general.
