April 2021 – Grafting Course

In April, the Staff Club arranged a grafting course together with Martin Jensen as instructor, who has many years of experience in this field, and Kim from Årslev was very supportive in providing the branches and rootstocks for us. Our participants could make their own apple, pear, cherry and plum trees to take home.

March 2021 – Activity Double Pack

In March, we were happy to offer two great activities to colleagues. We started with an inspiring online lecture given by Chris MacDonald on well-being and motivation, which was a perfect fit for these rough lockdown times.

Later we held the 1st AU FOOD Pub Quiz online using a cyberspace offered by Gather.Town. Seven teams participated and were challenged by Quizmaster Norbert. The questions were tough, but our candidates were tougher. In the end, the team Dill-Doughs won superiorly with 19 of 33 possible points. Congratulations to Janice, Frank and Signe! 

January 2021 – Skribbel.io Competition

In the beginning of 2021, AU FOOD Staff were challenged in the online Pictionary-like game Skribbel.io. We spend a nice afternoon drawing and guessing things “landscape”, “actor” or “Sydney Opera House”.

December 2020 – Christmas Decoration Competition

In the Christmas time, we asked our colleagues to decorate their offices and to vote for the office with the nicest Christmas decoration in the Department. Mette and Caroline won this competition in a close call against Signe and Danni.

November 2020 – (Online) Wine Tasting

After we had to cancel or postpone many of our planned activities due to COVID19, we decided to conduct the long expected wine tasting online via Zoom. It was held by our local wine expert Janice, who is a certified Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) educator and one of a handful of people in Denmark with a WSET Level 4 Diploma (and the only one in Denmark who has achieved a Distinction level).

This workshop was focused on the notion of wine quality. Why do some wines cost 50 kr. while others cost 5000 kr.? What does quality mean when it comes to wine, and how can we have an objective discussion about it with someone else? In this interactive session, the participants tasted four wines that showcased the range of possibilities when it comes of grape-growing and winemaking, and walked away with their own definition of wine quality.

January 2020 – Board Game Afternoon

On 24th January 2020, we invited our colleagues for a cozy board game afternoon. The Staff Club provided snacks and cheap drinks, and everyone was invited to bring their favourite board games.
