Upside-down the good newsletter

2023 – week 38

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

This week @ Plukrijp

We did:

To carry out our plan to let the Hei regenerate:

We started to destroy the raised beds that were collapsing.

We dug up the strawberries and put them in large bins which we placed along the fence surrounding the Food Forest.

We also harvested all the last vegetables growing there: parsnips, potatoes, leeks and peppers.

In the meantime, the big cleanup continues. Free spaces begin to emerge and give us the pleasant feeling of being able to move again.

We harvested all the small “Frank” tomatoes and processed them for preservation. Picking these tiny tomatoes is meditative work but their taste is incomparable!

“Planeet Heist 2023”

A fair that brings together everyone who is involved in the field of sustainability in Heist op den Berg every year.

Plukrijp participated by emphasizing above all our wish and desire to continue trying as much as possible to relearn the art of being together.

Inspiring Book

Written in Greek by an intellectual Roman emperor without any intention of publication, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius offer a wide range of fascinating spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the leader struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe. Spanning from doubt and despair to conviction and exaltation, they cover such diverse topics as the question of virtue, human rationality, the nature of the gods and the values of leadership. But while the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation, in developing his beliefs Marcus also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: a series of wise and practical aphorisms that have been consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and ordinary readers for almost two thousand years.
