Flaxmere NZ. Try keeping me away

Somehow Flaxmere has escaped my many visits to the South Island of NZ.  I’d seen many photos, but nothing prepared me for the epic reality.  The vision, the determination, the sheer grit of creator and nurturer Penny Zino are everywhere evident. 

Take a glance at this short video we shot when we were there earlier this year.  Then consider coming to see it for yourself, in the company of like-minded people, all determined to extract the lessons it has for our gardens back at home.

I can guarantee this tour will recalibrate your thinking about what you can achieve, and how to achieve it.
