PROFESSIONAL GARDENER WANTED
Hello gardening community! We are seeking a special master gardener to join our crew for the 2017 season. Ideally this is a person who is an independent contractor, used to hard physical work who is comfortable working with a crew and independently in an estate setting. This is not a vegetable garden. If interested please contact Connie at 505-670-8078. Thanks!
LAND FOR SALE:
I’m inheriting 20 acres in McIntosh, NM. I think the area is called Apple Valley. It has no improvements. It’s about 45 minutes east of Albuquerque, NM, and is flat, unimproved land. Average rainfall, 16 inches, average snowfall, 25 inches. Off-the-grid for sure. There is electricity fairly close, I’m guessing a couple of poles would do it. I’m looking for any offers. I live in Waxahachie, Texas, and have graduated from the Geoff Lawton permaculture design class of 2014. Because of that, I can see the potential for this land. Otherwise, it’s fairly useless. If you would post this to your group, I would appreciate it. Thank you so much, Christina Coombs, firstname.lastname@example.org
