Grow Box
A program of Garden Fun for your family delivered to your door from North Carolina 4-H and the JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State University.

Register through Eventbrite

The Grow Box gives youth and their families the opportunity to explore their backyard or the natural spaces near them with guided activities designed to develop their science skills. You’ll grow plants together, search for seeds, observe pollinators, and get creative with the hands-on activities in each box. 

Every two months, The Grow Box will be delivered to your door packed with engaging, hands-on activities for your family. Inside you’ll find plants or seeds, tools for outdoor exploring, an activity book packed full of information including plant profiles from the JC Raulston Arboretum’s gardens and fun garden games, and a garden journal to document your garden adventures.

September’s Grow Box program is fall vegetable gardening.
Estimated shipping date for September/October: September 16, 2020

  • Enjoy planting vegetables and strawberries with your kids, discover how to save seeds, create fun plant labels, grow microgreens, and more!
Themes of the following months will change with the seasons:
  • November/December: changing leaves and propagation
  • January/February: evergreens and cones
  • March/April: spring and pollinators

The Grow Box can be purchased individually – no need for a year-long subscription. Order one for the entire family or one for each child in your house. Just make sure to order by the required deadline to ensure that your family receives their box. Only 50 boxes will be produced each rotation, so make sure to sign up early! You’ll be notified by email when the box ships so you know to watch the mailbox for its arrival.

We hope that during this time of a pandemic, this will bring North Carolina 4-H and the JC Raulston Arboretum to your doorstep.
