Garden consulting is something I do part-time over the summers, mostly just because I enjoy talking about gardening with anyone who will listen. So I haven't really thought much about the business lately, but I recently got an inquiry from someone asking if I did gift certificates for Christmas.
Sure, why not? And it occurred to me that this would be the perfect Christmas gift! I certainly would have appreciated such a gift when I first started gardening. Plus it wasn't made in China, doesn't involve any plastic, and won't eventually end up in the landfill. Not to mention that if the recipient ends up adding a few drought tolerant and/or edible plants to their garden, we could end up increasing the sustainability and biodiversity of their local little environment. How great is that?
For all you gardeners out there, why not make up your own little gift certificates to give to family and friends? Just a thought.
