Kokedama 201

Wednesday, July 9, 7 to 9 p.m.
Public $70; Members $60
Kokedama: Loosely translated “Koke” (moss) and “dama” (ball) has taken the TBG by storm. The Japanese have elevated the humble moss ball to high art. Try your hand at more challenging-to-grow plants like ferns or succulents, or start with something simpler if you’re a beginner. Bring a friend to this hands-on workshop and build your own Kokedama to take home! Beginners welcome.
