Terrariums are all the rage these days. And on Saturday, June 23, Sarah Von Pollaro, from Urban Petals, will co-lead a workshop on how to make your own.

Tickets are $75 and can be purchased online. There is also a special price of $40 for young professionals! Ticket sales for the morning workshop benefit the non-profit organization’s women’s group projects in Haiti.

Want more? Diane Gross, from Cork Market & Tasting Bar, will conduct a wine tasting workshop during the terrarium lesson. At the end of the morning, take home your DIY terrarium and your favorite bottle of wine. The event benefits Roots of Development, starts at 10 am and lasts until noon at Cork Market & Tasting Bar at 1805 14th Street NW.

Roots of Development is a non-profit organization that helps impoverished communities on the island of La Gonave, Haiti, obtain the resources they need to manage their own development. The organization uses an alternative approach to rural development by facilitating a process in which they listen to diverse community voices, build on the inherent strength of each, and complete community-driven projects that lead to a more sustainable future.
