Katie's Garden

Intern Profile

I want to work at the garden because: I wanted to have a summer job.

Two of my personal goals for working at the Dallas Youth Garden this summer are:

1. I hope to harvest expected yield.

2. To meet new people.

Two things I hope to learn for working at the Dallas Youth Garden are:

1. I want to learn how to deal with garden pests.

2. I hope to learn the responsibilities of having a job.

I think my biggest challenge will be: Getting caught up when I miss planting days from track meets or dealing with bugs.

My favorite vegetable or fruit is: Cherry tomatos because when I was little my dad told me they were candy.

I hope to contribute this to the garden this year: I hope to contribute positivity to the garden and to help anyone that needs a hand.
