Visit to Æblefestivallen in Assens
12. oktober 2019 @ 09:00 - 16:00
This Saturday, we will go travel across Funen for some real fall hygge ! Funen is know as Denmark’s Garden as it has very fertile grounds and thus produces a lot of fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc. We will visit one of the local festivals to get a (literal) taste of this!
First we’ll take the bus together from Odense to Assens, then we’ll try out some of the various activities (taste different apple juices, guess how many kg of apples there can be in a pick-up, participate in a creative apple workshop). We’ll end the day by tasting some cake at a local café and discussing some of your local/national fall traditions! Do you roast chestnuts? Do you take a walk in the forest to see the leaves changing colors? What does fall mean for you?
Sign up is obligatory, please do so here: https://forms.gle/m4e6PxPZnyBBuDma9
