The Terrarium Sustainability Workshop is a hands-on green team building event where employees collaborate in teams to design terrariums from scratch. Participants will learn about the elements of a healthy ecosystem, its threats and how to care for one, all while engaging in fun team building challenges.

A terrarium is man-made miniature ecosystem, usually enclosed within a glass container, consisting of soil, various plants and decorative elements such as pebbles and figurines. Terrariums are typically used for decorative purposes as they come in various styles and sizes. They require minimal maintenance as the plants recycle the moisture and air from the enclosed environment, creating a self-sustaining ecosystem.

The Terrarium Sustainability Workshop offers teams a unique opportunity to engage in a hands-on, green activity while fostering teamwork and a more positive workplace. Participants not only gain practical skills in terrarium building but also develop a deeper understanding of how ecosystems work.

The Terrarium Sustainability Workshop can be tailored to most groups sizes, with a minimum of 5 participants and a maximum of 1,000.

The Terrarium Sustainability Workshop typically lasts between 1.5 and 2 hours. You can customise your sustainability team building activities and make it a more comprehensive event by including additional elements such as bee hotel building, birdhouse building, Kokedama crafting or creating living art pieces.
