Adult Garden Workshops: Kokedama Workshop
@ 10:00-11:00am
Kokedama is the Japanese art of using moss as a planter. Participants will make their own small “moss-ball” as we learn how to pot plants in sheet moss to create unique, organic containers, which can be used as centerpieces indoors or hung outside in light shade.
$20 (plus admission for general public)
Registration Closed
Nature Adventures
@ 10:30am
A facilitated, outdoor exploration with Riverbanks staff. Participating families will be loaned a backpack at the site of the Nature Adventure session and receive instructions on how to use the tools and resources contained inside. By using the field guides, magnifying glasses, collection jars and cameras in the backpacks, families can work together to discover new things and learn about our environment. Everyone will reconvene at a specified time to discuss their discoveries and what they learned. No one is an expert naturally; the joy comes in learning and discovering nature together in a safe environment.
