Hi I’m Rachel and I’m a graphic designer living in Auckland, New Zealand. My gardening history is checkered at best. At age 2 I would sometimes watch my dad gardening. This was all fine until I decided it would be a good idea to pull a bunch of his plants out of the ground.
At 8, my parents made me help them weed the garden at some point. I think I complained the whole time.
As a teenager, I was gifted a cactus which sat in my room for quite a long time. I would joke that it was the only plant I could keep alive. One day the pot got knocked over and the cactus fell out. It was completely hollow and rotted from the inside out.
A few years on, we have a massive garden of our own and with a lot of work I’m sure we can make it awesome.
