Tatkräftige Unterstützung bei der jährlichen Apfelernte
This year we received active support for the annual apple harvest on our own orchard.
16 diligent helpers of the women’s group ‘”Neuland, Neustart-Frauen finden Ihr Platz” of the Bürgerstiftung Lebensraum Aachen visited us.
The aim of the foundation is to improve the integration of women with a refugee background. The group is always happy to go on excursions together and obviously had fun harvesting apples. On 15.9.2019 the group Herzogenrath of the project Neuland-Neustart received the integration award of the city of Herzogenrath.
We would like to support the project by donating one euro to the civic foundation for every litre of apple juice extracted from the harvested apples.
Our orchard is an important habitat for a large number of partially endangered animal and plant species. It does not require synthetic pesticides or mineral nitrogen fertilizers and has a positive effect on the local climate. In addition to various apple varieties, it offers a home for many insect species, chickens, horses and beehives from which honey is extracted.
COVID-19-Operation running! But: Short conversations in the stairwell, the gossip in the corridor and the small talk in the morning over a coffee are missing!Nothing has kept us busy for weeks more than the topic "COVID-19". Internal and external processes have to be rethought and lived. Nevertheless, we can proudly say that we are very well prepared for the crisis, because decentralized working is not a mysterious word for us...
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Matthias Terlau as a new member of the Supervisory Board since 26 June 2019. There is another change: Prof. Dr. Hans-Gert Penzel is the new Chairman of the Supervisory Board since 26.06.2019.
