Spring is in the air…the days are longer, the weather is warmer, flowers are beginning to bloom, and that means it is gardening season. Have you ever wondered why bees love to buzz around from flower to flower? Stop by the P.D. Brown branch and pick up an educational take & make kit that will explain the science of photosynthesis, the life cycle of a plant, the history of gardening, the essential relationship between bees and flowers, and interesting facts about bees and plants. And each kit will include instructions and supplies to make a beautiful craft masterpiece.  

Kits can be picked up during regular business hours at the P. D. Brown branch. Curbside pickup is also available upon request. To make a curbside request, please call the P. D. Brown branch at 301-645-2864. One hour advance notice is needed for curbside kit requests.

After enjoying your kit, please take a few moments to fill out our online Program Survey (a mobile-friendly version can be found here) so we may better serve you.

We encourage participants to share their finished artwork by sending a photo to: pdbrownref[at]ccplonline[dot]org.
