When I was 18, I spent the summer after high school working for my parent’s landscaping company. As a recent graduate, I was absolutely over my job as a cashier at Target but knew I needed to work all summer to save some money before college began in the fall. Mom and dad offered me a job as a gardener working underneath one of their very experienced horticultural supervisors. I had never previously considered working with their company or in the green industry in general, but I figured it was worth a shot. After all, I got to work outside!
