Make a tiny garden and then stand back and watch it grow
If you live in an apartment or somewhere where you can't dig a garden or have large pot plants, a terrarium is a fantastic way of creating a bit of 'green' in your life without a lot of effort. This workshop, as part of the Hands on Brisbane Spring Schedule, will show you everything you need to know about making a closed terrarium which will need very little input from you once you've created it. Perfect even for those without a green thumb!

If you want to get creative, you can also add non-organic items in your little microcosm by adding plastic people, toys and other found objects which you can recycle and make your terrarium a little more special. A range of jars will be provided for you as part of your materials kit but you can bring your own if you have something special saved up to use for a mossy garden.

They look a lot more attractive than you might expect, if you were just describing growing grass in a jar.

Brings back memories of the 70's when these were all the craze - my son now has one on his computer, and the green is a relief from the electronics. Beautiful!
