Terrariums & Micro-Gardens
A terrarium is a simple but magical creation: it refers to any container—sealable or open-air—that contains soil and plants that can be maintenanced over time to help the plants flourish. In this workshop, instructors Jayton Howard (Conservatory Horticulturist) and T.J. Oliver (Kroger Community Kitchen Garden Horticulturist) will unearth the history of terrariums, including the story behind the first credited terrarium, which started as an accidental experiment in the 1800s. You’ll have the opportunity to get your hands dirty as you make your own magical mini-garden in a small jar. You’ll learn everything you need to know about how to care for your terrarium at home. As a special bonus, Jayton and T.J. will also be providing an exclusive guided tour of some of the Conservatory’s tropical plants and terrarium creations!
