As every year, the OLGA newsletter is a must in the week leading up to Christmas. This time it's full of stories that have kept us busy in 2023. From the question of how we can make agroforestry more widespread in Saxony and generally, to innovative ideas and concepts for bringing more regionally grown pulses onto the menus of restaurant and catering services in Dresden and the surrounding area. Read more about innovative urban-rural affairs and people who want to make a difference on the way to a sustainable agriculture and food industry!

Enjoy reading and a have some calmful day towards the end of the year!
