$ 95  

Come learn about the beauty and importance of Pacific Northwest native plants for our local habitat while you create a unique sustainable tabletop mini-habitat garden.
In this hands-on class you’ll use a repurposed lamp globe to house your new native plant and express its natural woodland habitat through basic plant design approaches integrated with flower arrangement techniques using natural and fun elements, such as moss, woodchips, branches, and faux bird or insect additions.
During class we’ll discuss what native plants are and explore their versatility and benefits, such as their important role for our local declining populations of birds and insects.
You’ll walk away with a woodland tabletop garden and be inspired and empowered with lots of information and resources on how to help our local habitat, even if you’re an apartment dweller or a renter without garden space! You can be the steward for our habitat wherever you live!

• Repurposed lamp globe with base and drainage assembled (a variety of lamp globes)
