#376: How to Make Money Selling Your Extra Home Grown Vegetables

In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#376: How to Make Money Selling Your Extra Home Grown Vegetables In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Sam Lillie the creator of about how you can make money selling the fruits and vegetables that you grow at home.

Sam's story begins in his town just outside of Seattle where he was looking for a way to help reduce the waste from people's backyards by paying for their abundance and then reselling those fresh vegetables to eager buyers.

That concept led Sam to create, an online marketplace that connects home vegetable gardeners with buyers that are looking to eat healthier and buy local.

Sam will tell us how it all started, the work he put in to get to where he is today and how works.

He'll tell you how you can sign up for free, the costs associated with selling your produce through and Sam will share stories about buyers and sellers getting together to create some memorable experiences in the garden.

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!

About this episode's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Sam Lillie

#376: How to Make Money Selling Your Extra Home Grown Vegetables Vinder is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and buy local produce. We want to connect home growers who have an abundant garden with community members looking for local produce. We're here to create a transparent agricultural system that informs consumers about who's growing their food, how it's being grown, and where. Vinder makes it easy to buy ultra local food, boost your community's economy, and promote sustainable agriculture.

Founded in Port Townsend, WA, a rural Victorian art and seaport community on the Olympic Peninsula, on July 11th, 2016, Vinder was originally launched on foot and bicycle by the founder and CEO, Sam Lillie. Sam would go door to door asking homeowners if they had a home garden, if they ever had too much produce, and if they ever thought about selling some. Many said yes, they did produce an abundance of produce and no, they never thought about selling any. Within 3 months, Vinder connected 30 home growers with 15 families and distributed over 300 lbs of homegrown produce.

Sam Lillie lives in Port Townsend, WA and is a graduate of San Jose State University ('15). After graduating with a B.S. in business, Sam hiked from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. After the 5 month journey was complete, Sam applied to, and was rejected from, 106 companies across 4 states. That's when he decided to launch Vinder and he's never looked back. Sam says the thing he enjoys most about Vinder is the connection with growers in the community- being able to talk to the community members growing the food, seeing the home gardens, learning how they grow their crops, and getting his hands in the soil.
