Sophia's Garden

Intern Profile

I want to work at the garden because: Well, mostly because it's fun! I really enjoyed it last year, and so far this year It's pretty fun! i really like growing a garden, and i like the social aspect!

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

1. To have a good yield by the end of the season! i did pretty darn well last year, so I hope to do even better this year!!

2. Maybe learn to be a little more social, and a little less anxious haha! I think talking to the same people in a group is a good start :)

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

1. Learn more about gardening!

2. Maybe learn to be a little more confident in what I'm doing? I think I'm doing well so far :)

I think my biggest challenge will be: Working with a mask on haha..

My favorite vegetable or fruit is: Hmm..really hard to decide! In terms of what we grow, I like carrots, lettuce and pumpkin! Aside from that...I like pineapple and peach etc... Haha I'm so indecisive, sorry!

I hope to contribute this to the garden this year: Hmm...maybe helping my peers with some of their gardening, since I've been here before..and...I'm pretty darn responsible, so maybe i could try to set an example?
