Garden-Based Learning


In 2018, I had the pleasure of completing a Child & Youth Care (CYC) Internship with the Dovercourt Boys & Girls Club.


My special interest in Horticultural Therapy allowed me to work in their Teaching Garden, where, with the support of Garden Coordinator Arielle Bruce, I worked to introduce therapeutic activities and tools that promoted self-awareness, interpersonal connection, and coping skills.
