PROPERTY AND LAND
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.

PERMACULTURE MENTOR REQUIRED. We are a Medical Missionary Outpost Center in Senegal, West Africa. We are trying to install a permanent market garden but historically we have had issues with year-round in- ground gardening due to the climate, Sahel region, and lack of water. We are looking for someone who has experience in raised beds, permaculture and/or desert gardening who can help us set up a garden space. We do have trees- several mangoes, sweet sop, soursop, some citrus-mostly lemons, tamarind and guava. We are in a small village outside of Dakar, the capital of Senegal. We can provide housing and hopefully we can grow enough food to eat. If you would like more information, please send an email to [email protected] or a WhatsApp message to +221 77 694 3028
