[October 04, 2012]  Come get your hands dirty and plant a tropical terrarium -- a miniature "world in a bottle." University of Illinois Extension will offer terrarium-making workshops in Lincoln next week.

A terrarium workshop for adults will begin at 5 p.m. Wednesday. The other workshop will be for area youth and will begin at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. The sessions will be at the U of I Extension building, 980 N. Postville Drive, Lincoln.

The terrariums will need very little, if any, extra watering after they are assembled. Join Jennifer Fishburn, horticulture educator, as she explains how this is possible with the help of the water cycle, an essential part of horticulture and our environment.

Preregistration is required and is available online via the Logan-Menard-Sangamon Extension website, http://web.extension.illinois.edu/lms/. The workshop is limited to 15 participants. Teachers will receive one hour of CPDU credit.
