Terrariums: Fun with Mason Jars
5 Have Dabbled
Just because it's summer time and the kids are out of school, doesn't mean the learning needs to come to a halt!
This Dabble class, great for tricking your kids into learning about recycling and planting, will show you the basics of re-purposing a mason jar into an adorable terrarium. We'll provide the jars and all the supplies necessary, and show you how to add color, texture and a little bit of green to your home ... without spending money or creating waste. Learn the steps involved in potting the terrarium, including sourcing supplies and plants locally, strategically selecting greens and other household items you can use as potters and accents.
Then roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty (or let your little ones do all the work) as you design your own low maintenance mini-garden perfect for brightening up the bare window sill, night table, or kitchen counter.
Come with your children (ages 7+) ... or just come with your inner child, and let's usher in summer with bountiful, lush greens.
The class will be hosted during Andersonville's GREEN WEEK, at Urban Orchard, your everyday farmer's market in a store. Urban Orchard supports locally sourced, small batch food makers, along with vegan, organic, gluten-free and locally grown and raised products. There'll be plenty of time before and after the class to get some organic and local grocery shopping done (including organic wines and beers), visit with the free product demo vendors or even grab a cup of organic coffee from the in-store bistro.

Tina Weidenhammer launched her own business, B3 Terrariums: Books, Bottles, & Bulbs, a little over a year ago. B3t focuses on upcycling (repurposing) bottles, glass containers, light bulbs, and books into home plant accents. The goal of b3t is to facilitate people to change how they engage nature in their urban environments. They can do this by taking one time use objects and giving them a second purpose while bringing nature inside. Tina has been making and selling upcycled terrariums at art shows, online and through individual and business contracts over the last year.
