Mamas Who Love the Luscious Life: Classes at Succulence

This charming Bernal shop is super popular with those who love their air plants, succulents and moss art. They offer supplies like pebbles, rocks, planters, books, and art, but it’s the classes where magic happens. Learn all about DIY vertical gardening—nice if you’re a city mama living in snug quarters. Or how about the ins and outs of creating your own terrarium? Take it to the next level with an aerium or no-fuss moss wall hanging. Bonus: wine and snacks are served at each two-hour class, which meet once a month. Classes are $65.
