Organised and ran a paid workshop for the public around construction of aquatic terrariums, or “jarrariums”; a self contained, low maintenance underwater landscape and aquatic ecosystem suitable for indoors. Promoted the talk and workshop in local areas, community groups and online through social media. I gave a talk to around 30 attendants about the role of aquatic plants in ecosystems, their cultivation requirements and the theory behind the jarrarium concept. Workshop attendants then constructed their own jarrarium to take home, following my steps and with my guidance. Required specialist knowledge of the cultivation of indigenous aquatic plants, and how to communicate this knowledge to the public in an accessible & engaging way, as well as resourcing and organizing the structure and proceedings of the workshop.
Each participant will took away their own jarrarium that they created (complete with indigenous plants), and care instructions as part of the cost.
