January 2015 Monthly Meeting

Did you know that Terrarium Gardening has been popular for nearly 200 years?  Our Monday, January 19th meeting featured a wonderful terrarium presentation by Emily Robinson.  In addition to sharing the history of terrarium gardening, she brought us good advice on selecting suitable containers and plant material and gave tips for how best to create and maintain a healthy eco-system in a new terrarium.  Emily also did a hands-on demonstration by building a new terrarium and graciously answered numerous questions from our members.

Enjoy a pictures from our meeting.
