Overview
Micro Plant Studio provides year-round planting workshops and parties designed to increase member’s sense of community in the corporate and nonprofit sector. Workshops may serve as a formal or informal social activity to bring your team together or it can be tailored to fundraise money for a particular cause. No prior planting or arts background is required from participants.

Workshop Planning
Workshops are planned in partnership with the company’s appointed personnel that will be hosting the Micro Plant Studio team.

Workshop structure
The workshops can be part of a large event or the main activity of an event. In general, prior to the start of planting, a few group interactive activities are held, which not only helps to break the ice but also allows participants to get to know Micro Plant Studio’s team and vice versa. At the end, time will be provided for participants to reflect on the workshop and takeaways.

Depending of the workshop, it can be conducted between 1.5 hours to 2 hours or longer.
