NOTE: This program is sold out.

Celebrate National Public Gardens Week with this hands-on workshop, with step-by-step guidance on creating a healthy small terrarium of your very own. Learn a bit of history about terrariums, as well as the difference between an open and a closed terrarium. We’ll demonstrate the best methods for layering your terrarium and offer tips on caring for and maintaining your new creation once you take it home.  Terrariums will be created in 32-ounce glass jars.  Makes a perfect gift for Mother’s Day! All materials included. 

Please Note: One ticket covers the cost of materials for one terrarium. If adults and youth would like separate terrariums, the corresponding number of tickets must be purchased.  Youth under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
