It feels like Spring is on it's way and we have so much to do now.As well as the ornamental garden, we need to do the vegetable garden and my large fruit garden is crying out for planting.
August is the last month of Winter and a good time to come to Geraldine because the skiing ia still good and close to here so we are looking forward to meeting you
Now that Winter is here, we are looking for people to continue with maintenance (digging a shallow ditch, helping to cover a steep slope and weeding and planting garden borders. Over this last season our garden plans are beginning to come true and thanks to the work of of our helper the garden is starting to form. So if you want to part of this garden please come and stay for a few days and add your creative touch to this garden
As my facebook skills aren't up getting photos on here, I invite you to see my facebook page and the Across the Border page.
We are establishing a new garden in beautiful Geraldine on smallish sloped section.We have built a small house and now after nearly a year we have established a double perennial border and working on a shade garden under three lovely old pear trees.We are in our early sixtys and feel that time is of the essence. I want to make a natural pond and vege gardens and we need help with this project and offer a warm sunny house, your own room and plenty of leisure time to ski and other activities in return for tree planting and other garden activities. We are probably best suited to shortish stays of a week or so for now, but have good contacts here and may be able to help you find another place
Geraldine is a pretty small town with cafes and we are close to town and bus links to the main cities and to Queenstown.
I think this placing would most suit those keen on practicable garden and who would like to learn growing skills and my way of propagating flowers and vegetables.You don't have to be a gardener now but at least be keen to learn.We also are keen to help with English language conversation skills of our helpers.
