About the Event

Come join us for this awesome day out in nature! Nature walk and Terrarium building! Take your own piece of the Gardens with you. 

We will begin our workshop meeting at the HARMONY sign in booth. From there we will all go over the materials for building the Terrarium. After that we will take our glass jars with us and begin our Nature Walk. On the walk we will be able to notice the varity of plant life at the gardens. We will then travel down the paths and collect items to go into our jars while discussing the purpose each item plays in the life of the Terrarium. This is a great activity for the whole family! 

How does it work?

Closed terraria create a unique environment for plant growth, as the transparent walls allow for both heat and light to enter the terrarium. Sealed container combined with the heat entering the terrarium allows for the creation of a small scale water cycle. This happens because moisture from both the soil and plants evaporates in the elevated temperatures inside the terrarium. This water vapour then condenses on the walls of the container, and eventually falls back to the plants and soil below. Keeping the terrarium sealed allows for the circulation of water. 

How to care for your Terrarium?

The terrarium may be opened once a week to remove excess moisture from the air and walls of the container. This is done to prevent growth of mold or algae which could damage the plants and discolour the sides of the terrarium. Terraria must also be watered occasionally, the absence of condensation on the walls of the terrarium or any wilting of the plants is an indicator that the terrarium requires water.

Nature Walk:

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature. Mediation walks are an easy way to get involved with mediation process. It is easy to be in the present moment when you are looking at the plant life, and enjoying the sounds of nature around you.
