Betty and Jacob Friedman Holistic GardenBetty and Jacob Friedman Holistic Garden

Show your support of the Betty and Jacob Friedman Holistic Garden at Rice University by purchasing an engraved brick to help us make the demonstration gardens in the front of our Garden more accessible. Your gift will also help us maintain the Garden year round and allow us to offer programs that create community and introduce people of all ages and physical abilities to the benefits of planting, nurturing and picking their own produce.

Your engraved brick is a lasting legacy to celebrate a graduation, honor a loved one, show school or college spirit, or pay tribute to a favorite colleague, professor, or your time as a student.

You can purchase a 4"x8" brick for $100 or a 12"x12" brick for $300. All bricks are reddish orange to match the pavers in our outdoor kitchen and pergola and feature uppercase letters in black. Each 4"x8" brick fits a maximum of 3 lines with 18 characters per line, including punctuation and spacing; each 12"x12" brick fits a maximum of 10 lines with 23 characters per line including punctuation and spacing. To save space, we suggest using "&" instead of the word "and." If your message does not fit on the brick size of your choosing, please contact us at We can help you abbreviate your message or discuss purchasing multiple bricks.

Bricks will be installed in the front of the Garden between the main entrance and the outdoor kitchen. They will be installed twice a year in the fall and spring, but you can purchase a brick anytime to be included in a future installation. Once installed, they will remain there for the life of the Garden.
