Stephen's Garden

Intern Profile 


I want to work at the garden because : I would like to get experience working with other people as well as learning how to garden and keep plants alive.


Two of my personal goals for working at the Dallas Youth Garden this summer are:  
1. To get within ten pounds of my potential yearly yield of vegetables.
2. To grow in communication skills and being able to ask for help.

Two things I hope to learn for working at the Dallas Youth Garden are: 
1. To be able to tell the difference between a weed and plant.
2.  To learn how to properly use all tools and how to harvest vegetables.

I think my biggest challenge will be: Keeping my crops up to date and making sure to fill out the time sheet.


My favorite vegetable or fruit is: Cucumber because of its hydration and its health benefits mainly of antioxidants 


I think a leader is: A person that is willing to help people and encourage others with their words and actions or both.


I hope to contribute this leadership skill to the garden this season: By being open to people's criticism and building off of it.
