  • Description

    Paul recently retired from a career as a plant buyer and grower for an independent garden/outdoor lifestyle store. I am a dental hygienist and work part time in a dental practice and will be retiring soon from a teaching position at a local college. We have travelled to Europe a few times including a workaway in Italy and twice in France. We loved our time working there. We are enthusiastic gardeners and horticulturists with a wide range of experience planting, pruning, designing, and lots of weeding! Paul is good with a chain saw and power tools. We have always had large gardens of our own and understand the continuous work that it requires as well as the joy it gives to see a garden develop. We have children and young grandchildren and enjoy working with all ages. We helped our last hosts with working in their beautiful 3 acre garden, reestablishing pathways, pruning shrubs and trees, moving plants, as well as general cleanup and organizing tools/toolsheds.. In Italy we worked in their olive grove, cleaning their apartments, laundry, and cooking. I also welcome the opportunity to work with animals. Paul is an avid photographer with photo shop experience and I enjoy doing mosaic work. We both play petanque 3-4 times a week. We prefer spring or fall times but are open to other times too.
