About the event

Create your own terrarium, a mini ecosystem, complete with its own colony of insects.

You will learn:

  • All about terrariums, from the layers used to create them, to the plants that thrive in them
  • Explore the science behind terrariums and why we call them tiny bioactive ecosystems!
  • Design and create your own bioactive terrarium to take home
  • Relax and enjoy the cathartic process of building your mini ecosystem.
  • Your bioactive terrarium contains more than just plants. We add little insects, called springtails, that help break down and remove waste (decaying leaves and mould) from the terrarium, creating a healthier ecosystem. Neat isn’t it! This is what occurs in nature (but on a much smaller scale!).

This workshop is the perfect blend of science and creativity!  Lunch included.
