On November the 5th, Emma Sibley and Tom Murphy from London Terrariums came in to teach a group how to create their own mini ecosystem.
Yesterday evening a group of YCN Members and friends got their hands dirty, learning how to make their own terrariums, in a class taught by Emma Sibley and Tom Murphy — the founders of London Terrariums. After hearing about the history and the science behind these self-sufficient eco-systems, the group got creative with soil, plants and moss gathered from areas of London, namely Peckham Rye and Nunhead Cemetery. Greenery can survive for 50-100 years in terrariums, and as they create their own water cycle — they never need to be watered!
Due to the popularity of this workshop, we will be organising another in the coming months. In the meantime you can visit the YCN Shop to take a look at some of London Terrarium's handiwork.
