Stella's Garden

Intern Profile 


I want to work at the garden because: 
Being a garden intern allows me to learn new skills and work around others who enjoy gardening too! I've got a lot of love for plants! I think having my own garden to manage will be super fun and give me new challenges. 

Two of my personal goals for working at the Dallas Youth Garden this summer are:  
1. To not miss any days at the garden
2. To be really creative on my leadership projects

Two things I hope to learn for working at the Dallas Youth Garden are: 
1. Knowing how to properly harvest/cut my vegetables
2. How to treat plants for garden pests 

I think my biggest challenge will be: 
I think my biggest challenge will be dealing with any garden pests.

My favorite vegetable or fruit is: 
Carrots - Carrots are my favorite because I love eating them cooked. Of all vegetables cooked I like carrots the most. I've never grown carrots before so I'm very excited to try growing them in the garden! 

I think a leader is: 
I think a leader is someone who helps, encourages, and motivates others. A leader is someone who pushes people to achieve their goals and is sympathetic.

I hope to contribute this leadership skill to the garden this season: 
I hope to be resourceful and encouraging to others in the garden this season!
