The Big Apple Challenge on the last Sunday of September!

Sunday, September 29, 2019 at 12 PM – 4 PM

Byhaven “Åhaven” – Gro Odense Byhaver
Sankt Jørgens Engen 2, 5000 Odense, Denmark

We invite all apple-happy people to join us for an afternoon of apple juice making.

If you do not have an apple tree in your backyard, then you can also pick apples from public fruit meadows. You can find the nearby meadows on this map.

The event is free-of-charge, and everybody who brings along apples or helps with pressing the apple juice can take juice home in handy bag-in-box bags.

Kids are most welcome. There will be a special place for them with games, magnifying glasses to observe insects, stone painting, and other fun apple-related activities.

There will be snacks, and we will make soup at the fire. We have a tent in the event of rain.

The one that brings along the most apples wins the honor and a small prize.

So invite your friends and join the one and only apple-challenge-party in town. Åhavens address is Skt. Jørgens Engen 2, in Østerbro between Skt. Jørgens Gade and the river (parallel with Christiansgade).

Elderflower syrup & pancakes over the fire

Sunday, the 23rd of June, 13.00 – 16.00

Gro Odense Byhaver
Sankt Jørgens Engen 2, 5000 Odense, Denmark

Vi skal på sanketur igen! 😀
Hvis vejret tillader samles vi rundt om bålet søndag og bruger sæsonens smukke blomstre til at lave syrup, pandekager og hvad vi nu ellers finder på.
Tag gerne en gammel rengjort syltetøjsglas (eller en anden beholder) med til hvis du vil tag lidt af hyldeblomstsyrupen med hjem og lad det trække, så du kan drik det, når den er klar.
Du kan også tag vodka med, og lave snaps af sæsonens blomstre; tusindfryd, hyld, roser, osv ♥ Man vil også få mulighed for at prøve en snaps jeg (Sarafina) har lavet på brændenælder og granskud. Eller hyldeblomst te, da jeg også har tørret noget hyldeblomst.

Hvor: Åhaven (Sankt Jørgens Engen 2, Odense)
Hvem: Alle er velkomne
Hvad: Vi samler hyldeblomster og så koger vi dem til syrup over bålet og laver hyldeblomstpandekager. Det bliver en hyggelig komsammen, hvor man kan lære lidt om spiselige planter, og lære nogle grønne ildsjæle at kende.
Det kan godt være der ikke er nok hyldeblomstre i området, så hvis du går forbi nogen hyldeblomstre på vejen til haven, så pluk gerne lidt og tag det med 😉
