12:30 PM Doors open

1:00 PM Speaker: Tovah Martin

Topic:   Terrariums for the Holidays

      With the aid of a terrarium, you can beautifully host nature almost anywhere - in your parched apartment or your dim office cubicle. These "small worlds" introduce beauty, botany, whimsy, sophistication, and sparkle into any decor, plus these projects are also surprisingly inexpensive. This lecture shares ideas for transforming everything from vases to cake stands, fishbowls, lemonade pitchers, and cookie jars into a terrarium. All the specifics of working with glass enclosures are revealed to help you incorporate green into your life, no matter how busy your schedule might be.

      Tovah Martin is the author of many gardening books, most recently The Indestructible Houseplant. As a freelance writer, her articles have appeared in publications throughout the country including Country Gardens, Garden Design, Traditional Home, Martha Stewart Living, Oprah magazine, Old House Interiors, Horticulture magazine, Yankee, and Connecticut Cottages & Gardens. In addition to being the 2012 Writer in Residence for the new Victoria magazine, she is an accredited Organic Land Care Professional through NOFA. In 2013, she received the Gustav Mehlquist Award - the highest honor bestowed by the Connecticut Horticultural Society. She has appeared on the Martha Stewart Show and the CBS Sunday Early Show, as well as many other television and radio broadcasts
