No-nonsense permaculture in action!

Plukrijp is an open permaculture garden where the members can participate and harvest for a free donation.

We also offer apprenticeship positions for volunteers in our permaculture garden over 50 years old.

The aim of the association

The aim of the association is to be a learning center in permaculture for young people and adults. Our understanding of permaculture evolves continuously. So we offer a dynamic and contemporary no-nonsense approach.

We want also to promote the public interest by increasing the ecological awareness of the society. Plukrijp bears the “Sustainable Heistenaars” label.

How it works

Come and share your talents with us and let us inspire you!

Plukrijp is a special place where conscious people give a warm heart to each other and offer support to nature that gives it back in the form of an incredible abundance. We care for each other and care together for the place. Everyone is co-responsible. Our motto: ‘even if it’s not your fault, it’s your responsibility’.

The garden is central and is a wonderful example of “no-nonsense” permaculture where different methods are applied and explained. The daily contact with the pure energy of nature helps to live more consciously. One realizes that everything is connected to each other and that every action has an effect.

Plukrijp is a place to learn to live and work together in joy and deep connection. All aspects of permaculture are discussed. This holistic approach promotes personal growth and fills our hearts with gratitude.

At Plukrijp you learn through practice. The theory is passed on on the fields or around the table. Many documentaries and a very rich library are available to develop a broader vision of the world around us and a better understanding of our inner world. This makes it easier to start your life-design.

Our daily schedule is that we work together from 9 to 12 and from 15 to 17. The meals are taken together and most of the time there is an evening activity. The social aspect of permaculture becomes a daily practice.
