Kokedama originated from Japan where bonsai plants were grown in moss-covered spherical balls made of soil. Loosely translated, ‘koke’ means moss and ‘dama’ means ball. Gardeners have even tied string on the balls so that they can be suspended. A display of dangling moss-balls is called a ‘string garden’. Start your own string garden! 
This is a make-and-take workshop.
