When & Where
Aisha Sanders, Botanical Curator and Living Art Designer at Urbane Terrain
Aisha Sanders is the owner at Urbane Terrain. She is passionate about sharing knowledge and skills for growing plants indoors and out - whether lush house plants or sustainable vegetable gardens. You may have had the opportunity to see Aisha's terrariums and living art at Craftland in the Scrap Exchange, at Recyclique shop, showcased at Mercury Studios, as part of the Paradise Garden Project at the Carrack Modern Art, or as a mock terrarium shop for the Durham Storefront Project (Placed 3rd). Aisha is also president of a local community garden.
Aisha was on the terrarium scene before it became popular, creating terrariums for architects, designers, real estate professionals, and of course family and friends. She prefers to be behind the scenes rather than in the spotlight although she absolutely loves hosting workshops. Aisha has always been intrigued by the tiny miracles in the natural world and hopes to bring that same intrigue into the lives of others. One of the best compliments she ever received "you made a gardener out of me".
