Sustainable Living For Beginners – How To Make Money Selling Plants At Home

One of the biggest challenges people are facing right are creating sustainable sources of food and income. We have made it our mission to teach others how to do both with our sustainable living tips for beginners.  Learn how we are making money selling plants right on our in town property. Hint: We created a DIY Roadside Produce Stand / Seedling Sale area.

Before the world began to face all of these challenges, we were already on the path to living a more sustainable lifestyle. Living with chronic illness has been a challenge of it’s own but I can tell you wholeheartedly that ditching chemical-laden food and products was a key component in turning it all around. The freedom that was created with our sustainable living business allowed me to work around my challenges and allowed us to create our little urban homestead.

Sustainable Living Business

We started our sustainable living home by building raised garden beds and this year decided to add an income source by starting extra plants and selling those on our little property. One of the initial issues we faced was where we were going to sell them that kept them separated from the rest of our gardens and property. We wanted to maintain social distancing due to my weakened immune system and also wanted to ensure some level of privacy. The Only Display Solution You Need!

DIY Roadside Produce Stand

One of the things we really needed was something that would be versatile. Starting with a seedling and plant sale stand and later becoming our easy DIY produce stand to sell any extra produce we harvested. We decided that for this particular project an open-style canopy tent would be the best because it would not block the view for any traffic as we live on a corner.

The tent was super easy to set up and literally was installed within minutes!  

Selling Plants At Markets

This has already got me thinking to the future on Branded Tents with Walls and other outdoor signage we can use. Banner Buzz has so many options available when it comes to branding your business. Right now they are offering 20% off of your first order! 

Whether you are selling plants at farmers markets, in your own yard, or selling at tradeshows , branding makes you stand out , get noticed and remembered. 

What I absolutely love is that this tent is durable and will provide a sheltered space for any other sales we hold. As creators, there are many things that we make and sell  throughout the year. At any given point we can use this canopy to sell candles, chakra sets, dried herbs, or wood products. Everything that is created is made with nature and a ton of intention on our little urban homestead.

We can also use this as a gazebo. Just add some outdoor furniture and we have a nice sheltered space to sit and enjoy our gardens. 

If you have a need for something to use for your farmers market stand or for trade shows, I highly recommend the quality products from Banner Buzz.

There are so many different styles of charcuterie boards to choose from.  While the ones made with resin are beautiful to look at , I would worry that the chemicals from the resin would leach into my food so I would only use them for serving if I was setting dishes on them. To be able to place food directly on the platter, I would choose to go with a natural wood like walnut or olive wood that has been treated with a more natural option , such as linseed oil or beeswax.

Here is a round up of  are some of my favorite Charcuterie Board Ideas.

How To Grow Your Own Herbal Apothecary Garden Indoors

How To Grow Your Own Herbal Apothecary Garden Indoors

Herbs contain so many nutrients, vitamins and minerals and also provide so many superior health benefits.

Like so many people these days, having access to healthy chemical free produce and natural options to care for and maintain optimal health & wellness , is a top priority for this family.

I need access to fresh produce so that I can feed my body things that are not going to cause massive inflammation and digestive issue like so many store bought foods do.

This year we decided to try our hand at Urban gardening…

We live on a small property in town, so having acres of gardens or a greenhouse is not in the realm of possibilities,  so we built a raised garden bed along with several smaller gardens and added in container gardening along with an indoor grow tent. I now will be able to grow my own organic herbs and produce all year long!

The fact that I get to control what is going and not going in to my food is key to building a strong immune system and healthy body.

There are many things that you can grow for your own medicinal herbal apothecary and having a way to grow all year long ensures that you have a fully stocked herbal pantry at all times!

20 Herbs To Stock In Your Herbal Apothecary

Some great things to grow and dry for your herbal medicinal cabinet are:

  • Chamomile
  • Lavender
  • Lemon Balm
  • Sage
  • Basil
  • Feverfew
  • Calendula
  • Cat Nip
  • Clover
  • Roses
  • Cannabis
  • Echinacea
  • Borage
  • Yarrow
  • Mint
  • Cornflower
  • Bee Balm
  • Holy Basil
  • Pineapple Sage
  • Rosemary
shelf, store, shop

You can use a tent similar to the one below that we are using to grow organic peppers for hot sauce,  to grow a steady supply of organic herbs.

Indoor tents are also great to start your plants indoors before planting outside. (Just as an FYI , these tents are super easy to set up! I love how you can customize your tent for the space that you are going to be putting it in.)

These tents are a great alternative for greenhouses.

Once you harvest your herbs , you will want to dry them if you are stocking your pantry, it is the easiest method to preserve them.

You can dry bundles out in the sun, in the oven on low heat or in a good quality dehydrator.

Once the herbs are dry but not crumbly, store in mason jars or glass apothecary jars. You will then have easy access to your herbs to make herbal tinctures, salves, ointments, infused oils and herbal teas.

Keep an eye for further gardening posts and to see what we were able to grow in our new indoor garden.

One of the next projects will be to see if we can grow tropical fruit trees  in the grow tent and what kind of yield we will be able to produce. For the first round we are growing in organic soil and future grows we will be testing out a hydroponic grow.

I would love to hear what you are growing in your garden and what you do with your harvest.
