The garden for this to-go kit is inspired by one of our favorite foods – pizza! Each kit includes tomato, pepper, onion, basil, and oregano seeds!

Do you know your growing zone? Learn about the growing zone for Hampton Roads (Zone 8), plant vegetable seeds to start your own vegetable and herb  garden, and then paint a decorative bird house to bring your garden to life! The kit also includes an interactive map from our friends at the Virginia Farm Bureau. Recommended for ages 3+ with some caregiver participation. 

To-go kits are scheduled to be picked up from the Garden, and completed at home. Each kit includes instructions on how to access additional materials on Google Classroom.

Not able to pick-up a kit on the scheduled date? No problem! After you purchase your kit, email youthed@nbgs.org with the date you will be available to come to the Garden to collect the kit.

NOTE ON FACE COVERINGS:

In compliance with Virginia’s Governor’s Executive Order 63, NBG commits to the following:

  • All guests and volunteers ages 5+ are required to wear a protective mask that covers the mouth and nose when entering any NBG building or structure including outdoor restrooms.
  • Our youngest visitors, “Sprouts” over the age of two, are strongly encouraged to wear a mask in compliance with current CDC health and safety recommendations.
  • Guests are asked to bring their own personal facemask. NBG has a very limited supply of disposal masks available upon request at the Guest Services desk in Baker Hall.
  • Face coverings shall also be required when patrons are outdoors if a distance of six feet from other persons, not associated with one household, cannot be maintained.
