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.

THE GREAT BIG GREEN WEEK is a national week of events taking place from the 18th to 26th September 2021. It will be the largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK, and everyone’s invited! Communities across the country will come together to celebrate how they are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces, and encourage others to get involved too. Collectively we will put pressure on the UK Government, calling for decision makers to step up with urgent, ambitious actions to tackle climate change ahead of hosting the UN climate summit in November this year. Great Big Green Week events are community-led; celebrating local activity. They will range from allotment tours to art installations; from concerts to community stalls and everything in between. They will be hosted by teachers, bus drivers, sport clubs, artists, community groups, places of worship, builders and anyone who cares about climate change. National organisations, institutions, businesses and media outlets will join in, getting more people involved up and down the country, and putting pressure on the UK Government to up its game on climate change. PM is supporting/partnering, if you can help please do. To find out more and get involved, visit: https://greatbiggreenweek.com
