It is fair to say if you have property with good land and wish to sell on to buyers who would care for and develop the soil and facilities you have nurtured then the readers of Permaculture are ideal people to tell about what you have to sell.

Property tends to go very well within the magazine and on our website. It is fair to say if you have property with good land and wish to sell on to buyers who would care for and develop the soil and facilities you have nurtured then the readers of Permaculture are ideal people to tell about what you have to sell. "I have been amazed at the response for our house for sale. We have sold it and are now living in Spain." Katy (who advertised in Permaculture magazine). Be careful, property does attract internet 'robots' and some unscrupulous individuals from all parts of the globe, so do ensure you action all due diligence.

CYCLES OF A TRAVELLER is celebrating its 11th year in publication and is more timely than ever. A celebration of humanity in all its wondrous glory and the world in all its devastating beauty. From the streets of the Bronx, Joe Diomede heads out across 1980s America on his motorcycle for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with his college buddy ... but it doesn’t stop there. A bicycle soon replaces his motorcycle, the world becomes his classroom, mankind his companions, and synchronous moments the norm. While mingling with the people who share our planet we are drawn into a search for meaning before the internet offered instant answers, and the mobile phone constant contact. The timeless myth of the hero’s journey that takes a boy to manhood, allowing us insight and hope in this troubled, cynical world: https://cyclesofatraveler.com

Currently, because the ground is bare without vegetation, the waters flow undisturbed to the Red Sea. They need financial help, USD$35,020, to create a pond which can store 6 million litres of water - enough to last from one rainy season to the next.
