One of the key things about being unemployed or retired is that you are time-rich.

This means that you may get your house and garden up together, and have time left over.

In that case, you may be able to extend your activity by offering to help an elderly neighbour with her garden.

It's called share-cropping: She provides the land, you provide the work, and both of you benefit by having fresh food in the autumn.

This kind of thing will open up contacts and opportunities further down the line. It may even lead to paid employment.
