May Family Garden Spot

Garden Activity Kit

Activity and Book Kits are a great way to bring the month's theme alive at home while supporting the JCRA's Children's Programs.

May's Spotlight Theme—Bees

Bees are an important part of the garden. Learn more about these hardworking insects, explore all the different species, and enjoy all the gifts they share with us.

The May Garden Activity Kit includes a hardcover copy of The Bee Book by Charlotte Milner, an African blue basil plant (Ocimum 'African Blue') to attract bees to your garden, beeswax candle making activity, and a special treat from the JCRA's honeybees!

Kits are available for pickup at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC during our open hours or can be mailed for an additional $10 per kit.

$20 per kit, $10 for shipping
