Olive Oil from Lesbos – Solidarity for Quality

You have probably heard all about the current economic situation in Greece! I spent the past two years in Greece, on the island of Lesbos, and living in a small village, I experienced the effects of the austerity measures first hand through my male and female friends; I experienced what it means when people can't find work, when salaries of teachers are reduced from 1,200 to 700 Euros, when businesses must close down while banks are still expecting the monthly repayments, when people are unable to pay their electricity accounts, when there is no Euro left for heating fuel or petrol, when new taxes are introduced thus placing new burdens on families every day, when....

At the same time, however, I also saw with what great work effort people try to feed on produce from their own soil and how proud they are of their fruit and especially of their olive oil. Lesbos is the island of olives (and of Ouzo!). I helped with the harvest and know what back breaking work olive picking is. Now, the foundation for trade is to be laid with the "prototype delivery".


Trade at fair prices – directly from the producers

Before the economic crisis, there had been no need for small farmers to market their oil internationally as all family members held good jobs or managed their own firms (e. g. businesses in the hospitality sector or in craft). However, Greek guests and customers have stayed away in the past few years and many small business owners went bankrupt and are in debt.

The omnipresent and naturally existing olive oil, which determines the course of the year and everyday life on Lesbos, has now become the last beacon of hope for many families to earn a few Euros. Oil from Lesbos is still an insider's tip!

To bypass corruption and exploitation from multinational olive oil companies («We will buy one litre from you at a price of three Euros!») and to promote fair trade at fair prices, it is now possible to purchase our «olive gold» from Lesbos directly from us, the producers!

I/We will be happy about any recommendation and any support!
Thank you! Danke! Ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ!

Rückblick auf die Aktionen zum 15-jährigen Geburtstag von Contao im Contao TV

Es ist etwas mehr als drei Wochen her, dass wir gemeinsam mit euch 15 Jahre Contao CMS gefeiert haben. Da bei der Masse an Informationen die ein oder andere Aktion eventuell untergegangen ist, hat Joe für euch einen kurzen Rückblick in Form einer Contao TV Stage Time erstellt.

Projektvorstellung: mein-osttirol.rocks (Gastbeitrag)

Als mich Christian gleich nach dem Going Live unserer neuen Seite darauf ansprach, kurz unser Projekt vorzustellen, war ich natürlich Feuer und Flamme und froh, endlich auch einmal etwas für die Community und das Contao-Universum aktiv beitragen zu können. Diese Chance nutze ich hiermit gerne und möchte kurz unser aktuelles "Baby", die Online-Plattform "Mein Osttirol" (www.mein-osttirol.rocks), welche in Contao entwickelt wurde, vorstellen.
