Who gives them? Hostesses have day or evening events in their homes — similar to Tupperware and Pampered Chef parties.
Who is invited? Friends, families and neighbors. “Couples” workshops are popular.
What takes place? A 30- to 45-minute “edu-tainment” gardening party features tips about planting seeds and establishing seedlings, tool demonstrations, light snacks and door prizes.
Who conducts the party? A trained “garden steward consultant” conducts each workshop. Stewards don’t have to be experienced gardeners; they earn commission, bonuses and rebates based on sales.
Want to become a “garden steward” or shop by catalog or online? Business starter kits are $195, and print catalogs are available. Contact The Gardener’s Workshop toll-free at 1-888-977-7159 or visit http://www.thegardenersworkshop.com.
