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.
