Getting Dirty - The Book

Quit Your Job & Get Paid to Garden for a Living

While there are vocational reference books which discuss careers in landscape architecture & horticulture as well as entrepreneurial small business guides to establish either a lawn care business or nursery, there is not a single book which addresses the issues someone may encounter when faced with the desire to switch mid-career into this specific field.

I'm in the process of writing a book called Getting Dirty to help you and anyone interested in how they can get paid to garden for a living. Here are some of the topics I intend to cover.

You will discover how to:

  • Cope with trading in a well-paid job for an hourly wage
  • Overcome doubts about horticulture as a career
  • Obtain plant expertise without a degree
  • Gain the support of your spouse, family and friends
  • Get your first job even with limited plant knowledge.

Why waste another day stuck in the office when you could be outside gardening instead? Your love of plants is all you need to get started. Adrienne Jenkins can show you the way. Check this blog regularly for sneak previews of book excerpts from Getting Dirty.
