What you'll learn in this terrarium class:

As the summer winds down and the few green patches of Brooklyn turn brown, it’s nice to have a garden indoors that thrives throughout the cold months and requires almost no care. The art of the terrarium has seen a resurgence in recent years, particularly in the flea markets and boutiques that grace this borough, but with a few simple tools and some choice plants, you could make your own tiny container garden that will rival any you could purchase ready-made.

The woodland terrarium, with its leafy foliage, creeping moss, and heavy use of stones and bark, is perhaps the quintessential terrarium landscape. It also happens to be the landscape of New York City and its environs.

Learning techniques developed decades ago by master terrarium gardeners, you'll create your own woodland-style terrarium inside a container you bring with you, using plants, soil and materials provided.

Topics covered:
  • a brief history of indoor gardening
  • basic plant physiology
  • different terrarium styles to mimic different environments
  • choosing plants for your terrarium
  • how to make your own tools using common household items
  • principles of miniature landscaping
  • how to care for your pet terrarium
Some terrarium choices include: mason and candle jars, small fishbowls and aquariums, vases, beakers and flasks, large drinking glasses and brandy snifters, cake stands and clear cookie jars, or just about any glass container 4 - 8 inches in diameter and at least 6 inches tall. Of course, if you happen to have an unused hand-blown glass terrarium just sitting around, this is the perfect opportunity to replant it.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
