About this Campaign

The Bryan Wellness Gardens are multi-purpose outdoor spaces where students can engage in different aspects of their wellness.

Your gifts to the Bryan Wellness Gardens will help provide additional outdoor learning spaces to add to our resources and tools. Requesting $5,000 plus cost reimbursement.

At the Bryan Community alternative high school, we know by increasing awareness of wellness and providing opportunities for students to be more intentional in their focus, we help our students be successful and acquire tools to live a healthier life. With a community of learners who have often found themselves disinterested in school, we continue to look for ways to increase engagement and support students in their life and learning.

The creation of the Bryan Wellness Gardens will offer a great way for students to connect learning from their classes to actual problem-solving and project implementation. Students will get involved in this project from the beginning with planning, design, fundraising, construction, planting and maintenance of each area. We see many ways classes (Culinary; Science; Art; Math; Technology; Health and P.E., etc.) can be involved in these projects. As a part of our school-wide academic focus to incorporate Project-Based Learning, these gardens will become outdoor learning spaces that teachers can access to connect the curriculum to the real-world and engage more students in learning.

We are seeking funding to help with the creation of the Bryan Wellness Gardens. These gardens will be multi-purpose outdoor spaces where students can engage in different aspects of their wellness and connect curriculum concepts to the natural environment.

Garden Design:
The outdoor spaces (zones) of the Bryan Wellness Gardens will most specifically address our emotional/mental, intellectual, social, spiritual, physical and environmental aspects of wellness. Students will have ways to interact with that aspect of wellness in these spaces. Objects and items fitting to that dimension of wellness will be a part of each “garden” zone. Teachers will develop PBL projects that connect their curriculum and concepts to each Zone.

The following Zones will be represented in the Bryan Wellness Gardens with initial priority given to Zone #1 and #3 for the 2021-22 school year.

Zone #1: Peace Garden
Zone #2: Outdoor Classroom
Zone #3: Food Garden
Zone #4: Active Zone
