During these grey winter months do you find yourself craving a little GREEN? The presence of greenery in our living and work spaces is calming and restorative. And because condensation is formed inside the closed container continually giving moisture to the plants this kind of terrarium needs minimal care – perfect for gardeners & non-gardeners alike! We will also discuss other simple ways to “green” your home. All Terrarium supplies provided. Optional items to bring: small decorative items such as shells, stones, mini-figures, etc. to personalize your creation, wine to enjoy while you create your terrarium (optional), gardening gloves (will have latex gloves available)
