Green up your workspace with this desktop moss garden that can survive week-end droughts while absorbing nutrients from the air. Starter moss is included.

According to NASA, plants in your office workspace can remove pollutants common in indoor air like formaldehyde, as well as providing oxygen and increasing your happiness. Moss is an excellent candidate for this job, because it does not need much light or any soil, can survive drying out and grows slowly without dropping leaves. In this workshop, you will build yourself a desktop moss wall, add moss, and make your workspace a healthier and happier place to be.

This workshop includes an induction to the laser cutter, so you can come back and make another desktop delight for your friends.
