Creating Kokedama

Sunday, February 12th 2023
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: The Relic Room of the Promedica Museum of Natural History

A classic example of combining aesthetics and nature, Kokedama are created by rooting plants into balls of moss and then growing them suspended from the air or displayed on decorative plates. An adaptation of very specific style of bonsai, Kokedama is a relatively new tradition in Japanese gardening that is a great (and easy) way to add some living art to your life. Led by a member of the Zoo's horticulture staff, participants of this workshop will be provided with the guidance and materials to build two different styles of Kokedama; including one with a Phalaenopsis orchid! Start shedding those winter blues by creating your own hanging-garden to be enjoyed year-round.

Please meet at the orchid arch inside the Promedica Museum of Natural History 10 minutes prior to the start of the program.

The price of this program includes admission to the Toledo Zoo and complimentary parking in the Anthony Wayne parking lot.

Due to the limited space and the advance purchase of materials, no rainchecks or refunds will be issued.

Only 7 tickets available!
