Volunteer Background
Previously I have volunteered for the local food bank garden and Amarillo botanical garden as a student. I have taken courses on plant and soil science in my past. As well I have grown a garden for several years, slowly expanding.
Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
I enjoy growing all drought tolerant and native crops with a specific interest in tepary beans and sorghum. However, squash, melons, pinto beans, and peppers all tend to grow well for me in my hot dry climate. I have limited success with tomatoes, brassicas, and lettuce.

Possible GMOs in the neighborhood...
West Texas A&M, as well as the USDA both have test plots around the areas where I live. Mostly focused on wheat and sorghum with some radishes being planted in the past.
Other relevant information
Rabbits and flea beetles have been a detriment in the past. I would recommend not sending brassicas, or other primarily cold weather crops as they tend to be the only source of food for the wildlife at the time they should be growing.
