Shyla's Garden (aka, shy shyla)
Shyla Planting Watering
Two of my personal goals for working at the Dallas Youth Garden this summer are: learn
Two things I hope to learn for working at the Dallas Youth Garden are: How to garden better, and how to plant and grow good food
I think my biggest challenge will be: planting
My favorite vegetable is: cucumbers
My least favorite garden task is:planting, and watering
My most favorite garden task is: measuring, and picking weeds
I think a leader is: When someone can take central when they have to, but in a kind matter.
My worst leadership skill or trait is: shyness
My best leadership skill or trait is: When you get to know me I warm up to you.
