There are also people who help with specific job(s). For example, Inge designed the logo for the picking garden. Claude has installed drip hoses throughout the garden. Suzanne has made a map of the garden and the flower beds in Illustrator. These maps can be found on the website under the tab De Pluktuin/plans pluktuin. Frits, Gerco and John (along with a number of others) helped build the storage room and shelter. Bas has made some very nice aerial videos of the picking garden using a drone. The videos can be found on the welcome page of the picking garden plus with every webpage on the left side and on YouTube.
As a result of a jump around the neck in 2015by an autistic boy, my knee dislocated  and I sustained a permanent knee injury. As a result, I can only do limited heavy work myself and I am more dependent on others for the heavier work such as digging. Frits and John (along with others) regularly help me with this.
