established essence

Based off the teachings from Dr. Richard Iversen, early morning hard work pays off. 

"A year without weeding leads to 

10 years worth of weeds." -Dr. I 

Out early to beat the days heat, I often thought to myself, this internship is a wonderful workout. Focused on removing invasive species from the landscape, you learn identification along with eradication. 

There are plants that taste like licorice and fields full of Burdock. You quickly learn the limits of the tools strength and your own.
