About Us

Our Urban Landscape

Based on our own experiences growing up in cities we saw a need for educational workshops on terrarium building. There are many people who would like plants in their home but are intimidated by plant care. Terrarium building allows participants to unleash their creativity and learn about plant maintenance in an approachable way. Our workshops can also be a social space for people from all walks of life to come together.


On Plants

We believe growing and caring for plants can make people happier. Our goal is to create better and more beautiful environments. Adding more flora to your home can clean the air and even ward off the blues! There is something meditative about caring for a living thing.  Growing and maintaining plants has been a rewarding experience for us and we would like to bring that experience to others within our community.


On Sustainability

We are passionate about sustainability. As artists, we treasure bespoke handmade objects. Every item we sell has a story. It may have been handmade by an artist or artisan or previously owned or up-cycled.
