Since she was a young girl she has wanted to work in agriculture and buy her own land where she now plants barbasco [mullein] root. She sells her products to the major wholesalers. Sometimes she also has to buy barbasco. She is happy about her experiences and doesn't have any regrets about taking up this activity. She is also assured that she is doing the right thing for the environment. At harvest time she needs to hire workers to help expedite the harvesting of the barbasco. Normally, she sells her products to co-ops in her town at a competitive price.
