Garden in a Jar - Parent and Child Class

Class/Workshop, Children, Gardening

Spend an afternoon with your child learning to make your own woodland style terrarium for home, or as a gift for someone special. We will guide you through the steps on how to build your own terrarium and provide instruction on maintaining and caring for your miniature eco-system. All materials will be included (a mason jar, stones, soil, decorative elements and plants) and we will assist in the design process. Terrariums are living art and we invite you to bring a vessel that fits your personal style, as well as any special decorative elements to add your own unique touch to your creation. A fun informative class that will inspire you to think inside the glass world of terrariums.
