I am UK-based and likely to remain so for some time. I am looking for a flexible and creative residential gardener/caretaker for a start-up permaculture farm resort in Jamaica.

This is not a salaried position. The plan is for us to collaborate, gradually developing the site, creating income opportunities and sharing the profit from income your activities generate.

I hope to host courses on the property from time to time which you may attend for free (subject to tutor consent).

Please get in touch if you think you are suitable and would be happy in this role.

Hi Atarah,

Thanks for your interest. The sort of courses I have in mind are:

  • Permaculture
  • Natural House Building
  • Forest Gardening
  • Alternative Energies
  • Beekeeping


  • Let me know your thoughts and whether there are any particular courses you have in mind.

    I welcome suggestions from all interested parties and queries and offers of collaboration from interested tutors.

    Please get in touch with your contact details.

    Hi Matthew,

    Thanks for responding.

    Kicking off with a full PDC course in March (all being well), which of course the caretaker could attend for free. Would be ideal to have someone suitable in place before then.

    If you are interested, the thing to do would be to send me your contact details via Permies.com's Purple Mooseages.

    Hi Angela,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    I now have a caretaker. We had our first Permaculture Design Course in March and I'm now looking for volunteers and collaborators who would like to help me generate income to develop the site.

    Interested readers are welcome to contact me.
     
    I guess everyone has an angle. Fine, what do you want? Just know that you cannot have this tiny ad:
