Agile has a meaning in the software and project management world, but that is not the context here.
Agile refers to, when you have non honesteading time, use what you have and what you know where you are to supplement income.
Would upcycling fit.the definition for agile work?
Collect free pallets. Construct pallet furniture.
Sell it on craigslist or at flea market?
If so, seems to me there are many possibilities where free, scavanged, foraged, or cheap materials could be transformed into something someone would pay for. If one had a market nearby..
Those way out in the sticks might not find this viable.

It's quiet, easy work that you can turn into a business if you would like to for little to no investment, and work as much or as little as you like. You work at home, and while it takes some time to start generating income, the actual time spent working is minimal. You have lots of "leisure" time while you are waiting for things to grow, or sprout, or develop roots, so you can work or play at other things. Marketing is very simple. A free Craigslist ad or a few signs on the street are as much advertising as you need to get started. Everything about the business can be expanded if you wish. You make your own hours, and you can have your dogs around for company while you work :)
