Student Growth within the School Garden: Addressing Personal/Social, Academic, and Career Development
Swank, Jacqueline M.; Swank, David E.
Journal of School Counseling, v11 n21 2013
School counselors have the challenging task of implementing a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program to serve a large number of students. We present the creative use of a garden program to promote the development of students through the integration of the natural environment. Additionally, we describe activities and metaphors within the five garden stages encompassed within the program (planning, preparing, planting, maintaining, and harvesting), identify the American School Counselor Association Student Standards (ASCA, 2004) addressed within the garden activities, and discuss the implications and practical considerations for school counselors.
