Kent Community Oasis Garden

As part of bOing! International Family Festival!

Build your own mini windowsill rainforest and watch it grow.

A terrarium is like an aquarium, but for plants instead of fish. It is made in just about any glass container and planted up to look like a miniature Rainforest enclosed in its own little world. Making a terrarium is like creating your own mini ecosystem with the idea that it could become self-sustaining and mimic earth systems.

This workshop will give you all you need to start your own terrarium which you can take home and complete. We will provide the jar and layers you need for your plants to grow in, and you can choose a plant to start you off from our selection of sustainably grown  KentCOG student propagated plants. We will also look at other plants you might want to include when you want to expand your forest at home.

bOing! 2024: Terrarium ‘Jungle in a Jar’ Workshops

Sat 24 - Sun 25 August


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
