TERRARIUM KIT FROM THE BOTANICAL ROOM — CREATE YOUR OWN MINI JUNGLE AT HOME

TERRARIUM KIT FROM THE BOTANICAL ROOM — CREATE YOUR OWN MINI JUNGLE AT HOME

If you want to rewild your flat this winter but aren’t the most green fingered of people, this Terrarium kit from The Botanical Room is just the thing for you. Already Cee Cee-approved, the Kreuzberg plant shop has now come up with this lovingly-designed grow kit that comes complete with instructions and all the necessary materials for creating an easy-care terrarium. Once planted, your mini forest doesn’t need much attention besides occasional watering – all you need to do is watch your miniature world grow. The set is available in two sizes – M and L – so it fits all living spaces, and the plants themselves are seasonal. So if you’re looking for a little more green, stop by the shop on Manteuffelstraße where they stock the kits or buy one online – orders are sent out Monday to Wednesday to ensure speedy delivery.

TEGELER FLIESS BOARDWALK: A NATURE ESCAPE FOR WALKING AND CYCLING IN THE NORTH OF BERLIN

TEGELER FLIESS BOARDWALK: A NATURE ESCAPE FOR WALKING AND CYCLING IN THE NORTH OF BERLIN

Quieter than ever since the recent closure of the nearby airport, Tegeler Fließ is a mini getaway full of flora and fauna. Formed by glacial activity during the ice age, this landscape of peat bogs, meadows and woodland follows a 10km-long stream which you can explore on foot or by bike thanks to a clearly-marked boardwalk. A short stroll from Waidmannslust station brings you to the start of the trail, where your nature-spotting can begin. The stars of the show are the water buffalo, introduced in 2015 as a way to conserve the wetlands. And while these 500kg beasts are typically kept inside in winter, there are plenty of other creatures to spot: moor frogs, beavers, cuckoos, cranes and dragonflies all inhabit the reserve depending on season, so don’t forget your binoculars. The path continues for another 3km, after which you can head on towards Tegeler See and the gardens of Tegeler Schloss. FYI: the benches at sunny Marie-Schlei-Platzare a great spot for a lunch break amidst the soothing sound of calling herons. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)

Tegeler Fließ can be explored by bike or on foot starting at S-Bahn station Waidmannslust – you can view the route we took here.

YOGA PRACTICE GUIDED BY EMOTIONS — ORIGINAL FEELINGS STUDIO SPACE AND ONLINE SESSIONS

YOGA PRACTICE GUIDED BY EMOTIONS — ORIGINAL FEELINGS STUDIO SPACE AND ONLINE SESSIONS

When you open the website of yoga studio Original Feelings you are immediately faced with a question: how do you want to feel? Is it uplifted? Then you should try an energy-boosting kundalini class. Or do you want to feel safe? Then a deep, slow yin session is the one for you. Founder Karlie and her team of 13 teachers have been welcoming yogis to their beautiful studio on Graefestraße since October 2020, but circumstances have led them to switch to two online classes a day, with a range of styles to suit all moods and bodies. Set in front of the studio’s gong, my “Uplifted” class with Rebecca had just the right mix of dynamic movement and slow breathing for a good start to a chilly autumn morning. And because the classes are labelled according to feelings rather than styles or intensities, you are encouraged to think in terms of how yoga can serve your mind and body. The technical quality of the streams is good too, making them a perfect stopgap until the studio reopens its doors. Hopefully see you on the mat soon!

MIRJA MAUNO TEXTILE DESIGN WORKSHOPS — CREATE YOUR OWN FABRIC PATTERN AND HAVE IT PRINTED

MIRJA MAUNO TEXTILE DESIGN WORKSHOPS — CREATE YOUR OWN FABRIC PATTERN AND HAVE IT PRINTED

Do you spend your days looking for the perfect curtain fabric or dreaming of the sofa cushion that’s just your style? How about making them yourself at one of the Mirja Mauno textile workshops – expertly led by British-Finnish textile designer Hanna Mason. A vivid pattern pro, Hanna will guide you in creating your very own textile pattern, from the basic principles right through to the design itself. You and your (socially-distanced) co-designers will spend an afternoon learning and getting inspired from an array of colors, materials and literature before you choose a pattern from your various sketches and drafts. Your design will then be brought to life at a professional print shop where it will be printed onto fabric either by machine or digitally (the printing is included in the price). The afternoon goes by like a flash, and you leave with some handy new skills and full of excitement as you await your textile creation. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photos: Joe Wray)

MAKE YOUR OWN LOCALLY-GROWN BOUQUETS — WORKSHOPS AT THE MARSANO FLOWER GARDEN

MAKE YOUR OWN LOCALLY-GROWN BOUQUETS — WORKSHOPS AT THE MARSANO FLOWER GARDEN



How can the flower business become more sustainable? One way is to grow local, and here the Slow Flower florists at Marsano are showing the way with their very own flower garden. Initiated in 2019 by “flower farmer” Paz and her team as a crucial first step towards sustainability, the garden is home to beautiful dahlias, impressive amaranth, delicate poppies and many more seasonal blooms. Last Saturday we were allowed to cut our favorite flowers ourselves at the first My Garden Workshop, where we were amazed at the variety and luminosity of the flowers and the yield produced by the small garden. Under the guidance of experts, we carefully arranged our floral finds in vessels made by the team themselves. The next workshop is on Saturday(19.09.2020) and includes delicious food, expert know-how and great company. You will go home well-grounded and with the knowledge you need to realize your late summer floral dreams. P.S. workshops on more topics and hopefully a whole flower field will follow!

My Garden Workshop from Marsano, 19.09.2020 from 11h
Additional dates include the Q&A and Field to Vase workshops on 10.10.2020
