A few weeks back there was a post on here about someone trying to get help in the garden for their father, so he could stay in his house.
It got me thinking this must be an issue for a lot of older people who struggle to bend and weed the beds.
I'm wondering whether to offer to help some older local people in their gardens, put a flyer through their door, speak to some friends and see if I can help.
I'm no expert, just love my garden and would like to help people with their garden with the jobs that these garden maintenance people don't do. (drives me mad when people have 'gardeners' round and yet the beds are still full of weeds.)
If I was to offer to help and maybe ask for a minimal fee, would I then need any sort of insurance.
Do you have any advice with this. not sure if it will work, I'd just like to do some sort of paid work and this is something I could really enjoy.
I'm not looking, nor could I afford to do a full on training course, so it would be more of a learn from the older generation as well. Has to be a win win situation doesn't it ?
What do you think ?
Any advice gratefully recieved. Thank you.
