first experiences
June 27, 2014

Hello everyone, I am having a great time with my internship. So far I have been working on the community garden and videos for the community which will be my main projects for my internship. The first couple of days I did a lot of research on the community garden and how to build raised garden beds. With the help of my supervisor and the local extension agent, I have measured and marked out where the community garden will be. I have also drawn a map of where everything will go and how big everything will be.

Along with marking and drawing out the garden, I have also worked on the registration form and the rules and regulations sheet for the community garden. This past week I made a tri-fold poster with information about the community garden to advertise the garden to the community. Know I have to order all of the materials to start building. I have to build ten raised garden beds, a fence to go around the garden, and I have to till up the ground plots.

During my internship I will also be making a series of videos about the community. So far I have been working on making plans for what videos I will be making. I have came up with a few ideas so far. I plan on making a welcome video that describes my town. My other video ideas are to make videos about local businesses, things to do in town, and the history about the town.

So far my experiences have been great. I have enjoyed work every day and have been learning so much about my projects. I even got to meet former Senator Bob Dole. I am excited to continue my internship and see what else I will learn this summer.
