2021 – week 7 bis

Upside down = instead of announcing what we plan to do
(& most often find out we do not need to do), we relate what we really did

Building communities of trust is fundamental
to healing our collective wound.
At Plukrijp, we offer spaces of transparency and solidarity.
The community allows people to encounter each other
in truth and so develop trust.
We do the garden for YOU
Plukrijp functions on your frequent visits & harvests. Take along for friends & neighbours, this way we recreate real networks between us all, breaking down the illusory restrictions that now still separate many of us from our fellow man = UBUNTU.
The updated list of vegetables & fruit that can be harvested this week is available on our website under the heading “Current Harvest” :
This week @ Plukrijp
We did:

Frank slipped on the last ice Monday morning and broke his leg. He takes advantage of a week’s “vacation” in a 5-star hotel (hospital) where we cannot visit him. It is an interesting experience for the group present. This gives them the opportunity to check for themselves what they have already been able to assimilate and integrate into their daily life.


This week a larger group got to focus on writing and presenting our wiki. We are very proud of this tool which already contains countless information for those who desire and have the courage to leave the beaten path and want to contribute to the reconstruction of a more harmonious world in which natural abundance can once again flow freely.


Our first seedlings have been moved from the workshop to the greenhouse where they can continue to grow calmly.


We started weeding in the closed tunnels. What a pleasure to be able to put our hands back in the earth!


The mild and sunny weather on Friday and Saturday invited us to start the great spring cleaning in the flowerbeds.


Part of the group continued building the Hei-style hangar. Thanks to Bram’s advice and guidance, the work is progressing well!

We shared/watched:

We wanted to know more about the life of Ché Guevara following the viewing of the film Cuba Libre that we watched last week. We highly recommend the movie “The Motorcycle Diaries”. It’s a deeply human and inspiring film.

Interesting Movies & Documentaries

In January 1952, a 23 year-old Che Guevara set out, with his friend Alberto Granado to explore South America on La Poderosa (“The Powerful One”) – a 500cc Norton.


Within a decade the whole world would know his name.


The diaries he wrote en route, and which record their disasters and discoveries, have long been a best seller and were recently the subject of a feature film.


Ernesto “Che” Guevara de la Serna was conscious of the impact this journey was having on him and, once you have finished watching this movie, you too will hear Che’s voice encouraging you to travel with an open mind and an understanding heart.


To appreciate the beautiful places waiting to be discovered – but not spoilt; friendly people to meet – but not to judge; different customs to learn from and, probably, something you can do to make our world a little more just.

Analemma is a tool which transforms regular tap water into its supercharged, full-spectrum, coherent state. In regular tap water, H2O molecules move in a chaotic and irregular manner. Through a simple process, Analemma radically changes the state of water by rearranging the H2O molecules into a liquid crystalline structure. That structure, and its stability, has a remarkable influence on all living things.

Corona And The Other Reality

Faith moves mountains”; this sentence of Jesus contains a truth with which lives can be saved or destroyed. Our strength or resignation, our happiness or unhappiness in love, all depend on what we believe in.

Inspiring Book

A spiritual meditation on the role of change in everyday life explores how personal difficulties often bring about wisdom, analyzes humanity’s typical resistance to change, and outlines principles for navigating through major changes using such techniques as letting go, grieving, and managing fear.

Bestselling author of Return to Love and Law of Divine Compensation, Marianne Williamson shows people how to live without fear or worry in The Gift of Change. The time in which we now live is more difficult and stressful than people are willing to admit. We live with an abiding sense of collective anxiety. Williamson shows how we are paralyzed in our current state of fear and anger because we are not facing and dealing with the true causes of our anxieties and fears. Williamson reveals that fear and worry do not need to be the only tools in our tool box for dealing with problems in the world. As we learn to trust God and the love that surrounds us and guides us, we will see that what causes us pain is an opportunity for growth, healing, and miracles that can transform us and our world. Williamson delivers hope and healing as she illuminates ten basic changes that each of us can make as we learn to view the world through the eyes of love instead of fear.
