On 13 October 2019, the annual apple market in Strullendorf took place, where the focus was on fruit from the local orchards.
We were also present with our Gaia stand. Visitors could inform themselves about our local and worldwide projects. We had some interesting conversations and could expand our Gaia network!
We also held an interactive workshop where people could use the 9 sections of Gaia to think about initiatives, actions or projects that exist locally or worldwide. For each section you could write down your thoughts and spin them up. At the end of the day, our walls were filled with pieces of paper with various projects and actions. It was like a Mini Gaia website.
Since the apple market is primarily about the apple, we made apple compote ourselves and sold it in edible waffles. We collected the apples from a member’s garden. Amazing how easy it is to make apple compote!
The weather was wonderful. That way one can spend a beautiful autumn Sunday! It was great fun to participate at the apple market and we are very grateful to be part of it.
