The public will be able to learn about Kokedama during a new class that will be offered at the Mid-Plains Community College Valentine Campus April 28.
Kokedama is the Japanese art of growing plants in a moss-covered ball of soil wrapped with string or fishing line. The plants are easy to maintain. They can either be hung from a string or displayed on a decorative surface.
Students taking the class will receive three, four-inch soil balls to work with as well as an easy drain saucer. They will be responsible for taking their own scissors and garden gloves.
The class will be from 6-8 p.m. It will be taught by Deanne Holmes-Monroe, owner of Janine's Flower Exchange in Valentine.
There is a $45 fee. Registration can be done online at bceregister.mpcc.edu, by calling (402) 376-8033 or by emailing email@example.com.
