Kokedama

Honor Your Roots by Connecting with Mother Earth

WHEN
September 17, 2023 11:00 am -
September 17, 2023 1:00 pm

“Kokedama” is a creative botanical technique that involves growing plants in a ball of soil covered in moss. The craft reflects the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, the art of appreciating beauty in the world’s natural imperfection.​

During this mindful workshop we will honor the element of earth, create beautiful plant art, and discuss sustainable practices for our planet’s conservation.

Non-member fee of $45 includes general admission to the Garden and a complimentary gift bag with samples of sustainable home goods to kick start or enhance their eco-conscious journey. Members receive a $10 discount. Supplies and refreshments are included in the cost of the class.

*NOTE: Attendees should dress in comfortable clothing they don’t mind getting a little dirty.

Houston Botanic Garden offers free parking for most events, which are often held in climate-controlled environments, rain or shine. If you have specific questions, please email education@hbg.org.
