Almost 500 guests came to heroldsbach for the countrywomen's day at the beginning of march. This year it was all about regionality. "People in the corona crisis pay more attention and buy more from regional direct marketers", said district farmer rosi kraus and her deputy christine werner nodded in agreement: "hopefully it will stay that way."
Instead of asking for admission, the landgruppe forchheim of the bayerischer bauernverband had again asked for a donation at this event. Rosi kraus was able to hand over a sum of 1320 euros and a basket of regional products to eva wichtermann, managing director of the arbeiterwohlfahrt kreisverband forchheim.
She was very happy, because her colleague stephanie kaufmann could use the money for two current projects. "A portion goes to after-school children with a migration background", reported kaufmann. The children should be brought closer to nature. There is a garden workshop here where the little ones learn what organic means, that you don't have to throw everything away, what plastic is and does, or how to grow lettuce. "No matter whether people buy organic or not. It is important that it is regional", interjected rosi kraus.
The rest of the money kaufmann wants for the course "mama learns german and so do I" give. Here mothers with a migration background can learn german in a playful way. "That makes all rough spab." The idea to donate the money here came from gerlinde kraus of the countrywomen's group.
