Don’t Knock a ‘Make Your Own Succulent’ Workshop Until You Try One
I never in a million years thought I'd recommend doing this, yet here we are.
I recently visited Virginia with my fiancée and my good friend Jackson,, who does afternoons here at Fun 107, for a weekend getaway. I'd never been to Virginia and decided to cross the destination off of my bucket list.
First, let me say that the food is outstanding and worth the trip alone.
Once we arrived and settled, we went online to see what fun things we could do in the area. It was a Friday night and I was looking to get out and explore. While searching the local Facebook events, we came across a "succulent plant workshop" class. I jokingly said, "Sign me up!"
Forgetting how infatuated my fiancée is with plants, her eyes lit right up. Long story short, we ended up taking the class, and I have to admit, it was a good time.
The workshop was only an hour-and-a-half long, but we learned a lot about plant care, assembling terrariums and maintaining succulents.
We were given:
- One 8-inch glass bubble ball terrarium
- Drainage rock, soil, sand and decorative rock
- A variety of decor (colored moss, dried florals, shells, driftwood)
I wondered how in the world we were going to get our succulent terrariums home, but the business helped us secure them for safe travel.
If you're looking for a fun and different type of date night or friend get-together that doesn't involve painting with wine, take my advice:
The next time you come across a local "plant maintaining" or "succulent terrarium" workshop, give it a shot.
Maybe some plant experts out there will be inspired to organize one.
