String Garden: A parent-child kokedama workshop

Here’s an upcoming kokedama workshop, held in collaboration with Plain Vanilla Bakery as part of their Picnic Days summer-long series of events!

​​Introduce greenery to your living space with something space-saving and stylish that you and your child can make together. Kokedama, also known as “moss ball” or “string garden”, is a variant of bonsai cultivation, where plant roots are wrapped in soil and moss. In this parent-child session, learn how to make and care for your own kokedama. You will take home your own creation, along with a set of plant notes.

For children ages 8 and above; parent accompaniment required. $79 per parent & child pair.
