The Wellness Garden Capital Campaign

Dear patients and friends,

We are creating a Wellness Garden behind our office. The location is next to a 1.5 mile walking path that circles the athenahealth complex and is just a short walk to the YMCA and THMS cross-country trail. We want the Wellness Garden to be a place of beauty, peace, growth, exercise, education, and play.

Proposed SCHC Wellness Garden

Proposed SCHC Wellness Garden

Here are our goals for this summer:

  • Remove the existing fence and replace it with a lower & more open enclosure.
  • Build raised beds for growing vegetables (and teaching others how to garden).
  • Erect a heated, three-season greenhouse that will double as a meeting space.
  • Leave a grassy area for the pursuit of Tai Chi and Mindful Meditation.

Here are our goals for next 2-3 years:

  • Assemble a climbing/play structure for children.
  • Create a labyrinth for walking meditation.
  • Plant a perennial flower garden around the border.
  • Establish cooking & exercise classes and a fresh produce exchange.

Our strategic partners are Penobscot Community Health Care, athenahealth, Maine Community Foundation, and YOU! Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Sponsor a raised bed or sitting bench ($100.00).*
  • Make an unrestricted contribution of any size.*
  • Volunteer your time in planting the vegetable or perennial gardens.

If you would like to contribute or learn more, please contact us.

*All gifts are tax-deductible

Thank you for your interest, and for being a part of the Seaport family.
