How to make a terrarium workshop in Åhaven
Posted On juni 18, 2019
If you love gardening, but
you don’t have a yard, you have two options: join an urban garden in your town
or make a terrarium (or more) for your house.
We combined these ideas in a “How to make a terrarium workshop” that took place in Åhaven, last Sunday. Enthusiastic green fingers, big and small, joined us and we couldn’t be more proud of the results.
What’s the thing with
According to Wikipedia,
the first terrarium was developed by botanist Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward in 1842.
Ward had an interest in observing insect behavior and accidentally left one of
the jars unattended. A fern spore in the jar grew, germinated into a plant, and
this jar resulted in the first terrarium. The trend quickly spread in the
Victorian Era amongst the English.
Nowadays, a terrarium is a
great way to bring a little bit of nature inside our homes, and they are
perfect gifts. In fact, I started making them after I ordered one for my mother.
I wanted to give her flowers, but flowers that are alive.
