Look Ma! I'm a Market Gardener!


| 8/12/2011 10:06:21 AM


 

Well we finally did it! We started selling our organically grown vegetables in our nearby village of Tamworth. While we’ve been earning a small portion of our income from selling garlic and corn the last few years, this is the first time we’ve actually put out all of our produce for people to purchase, and it’s been kind of scary. What if no one comes? What if people don’t like our stuff? What if we don’t sell anything?

We had a good feeling because Tamworth is a great community. There are lots of people who are into the concept of eating locally and there is a even a group called “The Grassroots Growers” who are promoting gardening skills so that we can all become more independent and reduce the carbon footprint of our diets.

But there’s still that element of risk and uncertainty there. And with all things that seem to have a great potential downside, there is also a great potential reward, and that’s been the result of our efforts so far.

It’s been a fantastic success!



Oh we’re not getting rich by any means. But each week so far our sales have been inching up and I sense as more and more stuff in the garden is mature enough to sell, we can continue this.
