Saturday, November 19, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Tiny Gardens: Build a Terrarium Garden


Although not new to gardening, terrariums are enjoying renewed interest. In this Berkshire Botanical Garden class, to be held Saturday, November 19 from 10 – 12, learn about gardening under glass — a way to bring nature indoors year round. When enclosed in glass, plants thrive with almost no help from outside of their little world. This hands-on workshop will address the aesthetics and technical aspects of terrarium building including plants, soil preparation, planting, container selection, design and maintenance. Participants will build a tiny garden gem in glass using a unique selection of plants. Elisabeth Cary, who will conduct this session, is Director of Education at the Berkshire Botanical Garden and has been making terrariums for many years. She is a home gardener and specializes in woody plants, mixed borders and vegetable gardening. The fee is $50 for BBG members, $60 for non-members, plus a $15 materials fee paid to the instructor.
