Rory's Garden

Intern Profile

I want to work at the garden because: I think that working at the garden will give me excellent leadership skills, and also give me a realistic expectation of an internship or job experience, and help me grow leadership skills and learn better time management.

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

1. Produce quality work and plants.

2. Learn how to help others and be a better leader.

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

1. How to properly grow plants and veggies.

2. How to properly tend for and weed a garden.

I think my biggest challenge will be: I think that learning how to properly keep out weeds and adequately exterminate bugs will be a large challenge for me, I also think that learning how to balance sports, school, and my other activities will be a challenge.

My favorite vegetable or fruit is: My favorite fruit is an orange.

I hope to contribute this to the garden this year: I hope to be a supportive peer and a helpful partner, and also be a good example of work ethic and responsibility,
