Kokedama, an old Japanese form of garden art that is closely related to the practice of bonsai. In the Japanese language, “Koke” means moss, and “dama” means ball. On 11 July 2021,GreenLine organized a digital workshop on Kokedama. We had more than 50 participants, including school students also, join this webinar.
Mrs. Khushbu Gaur, a passionate gardener from a marketing background, was our guest speaker for the day. She shared the idea of the origin of Kokedama with the participants and later on showcased a simple & easy way to prepare it as well. Along with her, a few of our participants, including school children, also prepared Kokedama. Overall it was a great learning experience for all.
The session ended with a QnA round including various gardening related queries from our participants and at the end the children enthusiastically showcased their homegrown plants as well.
Last but not the least, Ms. Khushbu Gaur gave a very important message to all participants: Adopting simple lifestyle changes and reducing the use and wastage of plastic while reusing it in innovative ways as well.
Here are some feedback from our participants:
1) Gladys Pinto: Thanks for the Kokedama workshop. It was very informative and good to see children very enthusiastic. Thanks again for organising the session.
