Join a Terrarium Workshop

Lookout Santa Cruz invites members and readers to join their event series “Inside Santa Cruz.” The series works to bring people together to explore the unique, noteworthy, or “under the radar” happenings and offerings of Santa Cruz.

On June 15, join an exclusive tour and terrarium workshop with locally owned and operated, Little Shop of Horticulture.

At the start of this event we’ll go behind the scenes at this botanical based design and event studio with a tour of the space and a talk about how it came to life. Then get crafty with an easy, hands-on terrarium planting workshop, where you will create your own design using sand, rocks, glass decor and air plants. Finish off this happy hour event with some light refreshments and social time. Space is limited so reserve your ticket today!
