Looking for a Really Wonderful Experience?

Our terrarium class is a one-of-a-kind experience of laughing, sipping, planting and learning. You’ll not only get to express your creativity using tropical rain-forest plants, live mosses, and beautiful rocks & minerals; you’ll also learn the history, science, design and maintenance of a truly self-contained, low maintenance ecosystem.

This is not just another open succulent bowl! Its science and art working together. You’ll get your hands into the real stuff of organic life, getting in touch with the tropical rain-forests where these incredible plants come from and then taking home something so beautiful everyone who see it will be amazed. No wonder our terrarium class is now the most popular class of its kind in the United States (and maybe even the world)!

I feel like I’ve found new friends - the class was an incredible experience - with history, told by the owner. It’s clear he loves what he does and wants to share this with others. He’s like the best history teacher and kindest uncle you’d ever want to have. At the end, EVERYONE’S terrarium, and I mean EVERYONE’S, looked AMAZING. The class is full of information, hands-on building, laughs, community, and if you don’t love plants already, you will by the time you’re done. This is, quite possibly, one of the best experiences Portland has to offer.
