Fresh City Life My Branch is Green!

Fresh City Life My Branch taught me how to make a terrarium!

Last week I attended a Fresh City Life My Branch class at Ross-Cherry Creek, and learned how to make a terrarium! Terrariums are in the midst of a huge comeback, and these tiny eco-systems are popping up everywhere. We learned about what ingredients make a successful terrarium, and then designed our own to take home. It was so fun and easy, you can make a terrarium in almost any container. Several stores in Denver, such as Ironwood on South Broadway, offer ready-made, gorgeous terrariums.

The terrarium class has passed for now, but check out all the other amazing events for Fresh City Life My Branch coming up here. There are crafts, book talks, food demonstrations, history lessons, pet advice, business tips, and tons more, all at your local branch libraries! To help you in your terrarium endeavors, DPL has books to get you started:
