A couple of container questions…

I have two projects for kids in the works, and I need a bit of help.

Project one is a window salad garden. What should I use for the "soil" mix? I've got lettuce and carrot seeds left over from my own garden, but I was thinking about doing an edible flower or two for some color (like pansies). Any suggestions?

Project two is a mini-terrarium in a glass jar. I need small cacti and/or succulents for this project for about 20 kids. Any ideas where to get them this time of year?
