Nativity Lutheran Church


The East Aurora Garden Club will meet at noon Monday, June 13 at Nativity Lutheran Church, 970 East Main St., East Aurora.

Esther Kopp will teach the group how to practice the art of kokedama with just a few items and minimal skill.

The art of Kokedama literally translates from “koke” meaning moss and “dama” meaning ball. It is a centuries-old form of Japanese garden art that is tied into the practice of bonsai. It is a living planter as well as a distinctive display piece, featuring the moss ball as the focal and supporting point for a sculptured tree or plant. It may be affixed to a piece of driftwood or bark, suspended from a string, or nestled in a clear glass container. Hanging several of the kokedama moss gardens in a group is a “string garden.”
