Since 1988, Juniper Level Botanic Garden has been supported from a portion of revenues from Plant Delights Nursery, Inc., at the rate of 10% of gross sales. At any one time, over 1,700 of the perennial plants displayed in JLBG may be seen for sale in the adjacent nursery.

JLBG welcomes public, private, and corporate donations, and is in the process of establishing a 501(c)(3) foundation to preserve, protect, and maintain JLBG for future generations to experience.

For more information regarding funding, gifting, and endowments to JLBG, please contact Tony or Anita Avent at 919-772-4794 or email us at


For nearly 30 years, JLBG has relied on a loyal staff of volunteers who regularly assist the JLBG staff with maintaining and tending the display and research collections.

If you love to feel your hands in rich garden soil, be serenaded by birdsong, and experience the peaceful, grounded energy of plants, please consider devoting several hours a week to joining the JLBG volunteer staff. JLBG volunteers assist the JLBG staff as they plant, tend, mulch, and care for JLBG's unique, rare, and native plantings.

JLBG is home to more than 22,000 taxa (different plants) collected in partnerships from around the world and is likely the largest and most diverse collection of taxa on display in the US.

Volunteering is a rewarding and intimate opportunity to learn and experience why JLBG is a global destination of serious gardeners and expert plantsmen.

And to sweeten the volunteering offer, JLBG's garden cats are likely to assist and entertain you while you work!
