Terrariums: Bringing Gardening Indoors | Virtual class

January 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Terrariums are a fun and fascinating way to bring gardening indoors. Plus, they serve as an exquisite decoration and a unique conversation piece in your home! Join Rebecca Turk as she teaches you the best methods for constructing and caring for a terrarium.

A terrarium is a clear container that holds a self-sustaining habitat, allowing you to grow plants indoors with little maintenance. Terrariums can come in all kinds of different shapes, sizes, and types! Rebecca's passion for these mini ecosystems comes alive in this engaging class, so you won't want to miss it.

Want the hands-on experience? Purchase a class registration that includes a kit for making your own terrarium! The kit includes a glass container, soil, charcoal, plants, and rocks. Your terrarium can be built during the class, along with the instructor. After the class, you will receive a digital handout with instructions as well as a recording of the class.

The deadline to purchase a class registration with a terrarium kit is Monday, January 25, at 12:00 p.m. Kits must be picked up at the Garden on Tuesday, January 26, or Wednesday, January 27, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
