Enjoy a day out of the city and experience the delights of the John Fairey Garden, previously known as Peckerwood Garden, in Hempstead, and the BeeWeaver Honey Farm in Navasota, an hour away from Houston. Our day begins with a docent-led tour through the exceptional collection of over three thousand native and exotic plants of the John Fairey Garden, followed by a specially catered lunch on the garden’s newly designed patio, surrounded by a custom mosaic mural by Dixie Friend Gay, renowned local artist. We will then join longtime beekeepers for a hive tour and honey tasting at the BeeWeaver farm, producing high-quality honey since 1888, through five generations of the Weaver family. The store will be open for purchasing honey and a selection of curated merchandise.
