*You know that it’s going to be a bad day when…
If you enjoy digging in the dirt and putsing around your backyard, you're definitely not alone! Millions of people pop seedlings into the ground every spring, enjoying a bountiful gardening harvest as their plants mature; however, there's folks that want a garden but, can't get out their to dig, or to pull weeds. There's an opportunity in waiting for someone, no matter the age, to make a few extra bucks to pay that light bill or help with rent.
Why not have a part time job that you love. Sure you can head off to Starbucks or BestBuy but, why not fill your day with enjoyment and get paid for it? Think of the satisfaction in knowing that someone else is enjoying your creation.
Start by using your Facebook account to advertise and network your labor. Another place to advertise is Craigslist or Penny Saver. Another free site is to advertise on Yahoo's Groups. Look on the bottom of Yahoo's main page and click 'groups'. You'll find local groups or classifieds in your area. Vista Prints always has a free business card promotion going on too.
As always, safety first. Use working tools, have gloves, expect to feed, water and tinkle on your own time, tell another person where you're going and when you expect to be back, take a cell phone to check-in with a friend or family member every hour or so and it's always recommended to take a pal for security reasons. Better yet, make it a family affair.
HIT THE CHEF OR THE LOCAL RESTAURANTS!
There are plenty of owners and chefs that will appreciate the higher quality and freshness of a locally grown product. Do you have tasty tomatos, squash, corn or perhaps herbs that people rave about? Why not ask a local restaurant if they'd want to buy your locally grown produce?
Chef's love to create menus from locally grown and seasonably grown vegetables. If you have flavorful pumpkins that a chef may turn into a soup, melons to die for or romaine lettuce coming out of your ears... then you're an asset to a local chef.
When a restaurant buys locally, they're cutting out the middle man. This means they save a lot of money by buying from a high producing backyard gardener who grows organically of course. That's good money put into your pocket.
Sell seeds from seed packers that people will recognize like as like, Burpee, Gurney's, American Seed, Park Seeds, Johnny Seeds, etc.
