October Happenings



Workshop:  Terrarium Building
Saturday, Oct. 13:  9:00-10:30am
$40 general admission/$35 Homestead Atlanta members

Don’t get burned by all those cute little Pinterest posts floating around out there.  (Hint:  succulents do not want to live in humid, moist, enclosed vessels.)  Creating and maintaining a successful terrarium garden is both an art and a science.  GH’s Erica Doud will lead you through the wilderness of mis-information and draw back the curtain on the mysteries of terrarium gardening.  The workshop fee covers a selection of plants and vessels to choose from, plus a variety of potting media and decorative rocks and other accoutrements.  At the end of the workshop, you get to take home your very own masterpiece!

Topics covered:

  • Selecting the right plants and the right vessel
  • Planting techniques
  • Watering, light, & on-going care instructions
  • Identifying & troubleshooting pests/problems




Thyme, chives, sage, pineapple sage, lavender.
