3.) How To Rent Garden Space

Let’s face it – we don’t all have a huge yard to grow a nice garden with vegetables and flowers. However, you don’t have to let a lack of space stop you from growing!

I love the idea of renting garden space, and I think it will get much more popular as people get excited about growing their own food.

If you have an entrepreneurial streak, you might be able to start a business or cooperative that rents garden space, tools, and equipment to people in your community.
