Bring the outside in with a terrarium! Create an ecosystem inside a glass container using pebbles, charcoal, soil and healthy plants. A terrarium is a self- contained ecosystem, designed to mimic a particular habitat. In a sealed glass terrarium, humidity rises and causes moisture to move up through the soil and gather on the walls. This condensation then drips back into the soil, watering the plants which contribute to the humidity with their cycle of oxygen creation. Join us and design your own live-in ecosystem with a terrarium. Learn about plant selection, planting, design, placement materials, caring and maintenance techniques. All participants will take home a terrarium.
Grab a glass container and grow your own! A terrarium is a great way to enjoy the outdoors - indoors. Admire and share how a healthy eco-system with healthy plants functions. Plus, plants and materials used are generally small, so they won’t cost much, and glass containers can be found just about anywhere. With a terrarium, you can add an outdoor element to your indoor space with little maintenance, while adding life and love into your healthy home.
