Event Details

Make your own self-sustaining bio-active terrarium.

Come and join us for our Terrarium Workshop where you will learn how to create a stunning bio-active terrarium!

A bioactive terrarium is a self-sustaining ecosystem that includes living organisms like springtails. These tiny arthropods are beneficial to a bio-active terrarium because they help break down waste and provide natural nutrients for plants. They also play a critical role in nutrient cycling, releasing nutrients from decaying matter back into the soil.

Our knowledgeable instructor, Pamela, will guide you through the process and provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to create a beautiful and healthy bioactive terrarium. This is a perfect opportunity to spend a creative and enjoyable time with other plant enthusiasts while learning about the fascinating world of miniature ecosystems. Don’t miss out on this unique experience!

At our workshop, you will learn a little bit about terrarium history, learn about fundamentals of making a self-sustaining ecosystem, create your own terrarium and will be provided aftercare instructions to keep your mini ecosystem healthy and thriving.

The price includes a glass container with a cork lid, a variety of fresh plants, Highland moss handpicked moss, a wee container of springtails and everything else you need to create this beautiful self-containing terrarium which you will be able to enjoy creating and taking home. 

We will provide instructions step by step on how to create terrariums and aftercare instructions as well as answer all your questions!


Please reserve a minimum of 90 minutes for the workshop.

Plants Variety

The variety of plants which we will use in the workshop depends on our fresh stock and may vary. The picture of the terrarium represents an example of our plants.
