Event Overview

Dive into this unique sustainability workshop where your team will engage in themed challenges, competing to earn the materials and equipment needed to craft kokedama – the enchanting plants with their roots wrapped in a moss ball.

Guided by our expert, you’ll learn about the history of kokedama, its significance in the Japanese culture and how to prepare, build and care for your own kokedama ball. Apart from picking up practical gardening skills, this team building workshop provides a meditative and therapeutic experience, offering your team a refreshing escape from the fast-paced work environment.

Kokedama is the Japanese gardening technique that involves wrapping a plant’s roots in a ball of soil, which is then covered with moss and bound together with string. Originating from the art of bonsai in Japan around 500 years ago, kokedama became popular among the lower classes because it didn’t require the expensive pots that bonsai did. Today, kokedama has gained popularity worldwide for its natural, minimalist aesthetic and the meditative experience it offers during creation.

Kokedama translates to “moss ball” and is a traditional Japanese gardening technique of wrapping the root of a plant in moss, allowing the plant to thrive without the confines of a traditional pot.
