DIY Terrarium Building Station hosted by Desert + Vine Botanical Supply
Go to booth 8A to build your own terrarium. You’ll pick out a glass vessel (all reclaimed and upcycled glass) and learn how to set up a miniature garden inside it. You’ll learn the importance of having a drainage layer, how to use horticultural charcoal, and how to pick plants for terrariums that will grow well together. You’ll get to put all the components together yourselves while you learn and take home your living creation at the end. Cost is $10-$20 per terrarium.
