Gardening with Kids: Terrariums | In-person class

January 28, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Terrariums are a fun and fascinating way to bring gardening indoors. Plus, they are a great way to get kids involved in gardening!

Join our Garden staff as they teach you and your child the best construction methods, materials, and care for a terrarium. You will help your child use their imagination to create a world of their own, all while discovering real examples of science topics like the water cycle and soil. 

Class registration includes attendance for one adult and one child, along with a glass container, soil, charcoal, plants, rocks, and an instructional handout. You are welcome to bring small items to personalize your terrarium!

Please do not attend with more than one child per adult. 

Capacity is limited, so reserve your spot today!

Additional Information: This class will take place in person at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Attendees will enter the Guest Center and check in at the front desk. From there, a staff member will guide you to the class location. The class will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m., so please arrive at the Garden 15 minutes early to allow time to travel to the class location.
