A New Zealand Summer

If I were without a job, a bit younger, not married with a house and two kids, a cat and a soon to be puppy, I would be all over this…..

International Sabbatical at Kings Nursery in New Zealand – ‘Summer’ (as defined in NZ as Sept – March) garden center jobs for the horticulturally minded….More Details.  Allows for work permit and time to travel the country at the end of the visa. 

The native Pohutakawa, known as the New Zealand Christmas Tree

But since that is not where I am, I am hoping that some of you might find it interesting….and if you do apply and you do enjoy the opportunity, let me know, I would love for you to share your stories here. -R

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Oh how wonderful! New Zealand is by far my favorite country to visit and dream about moving to.
