A mossy urn suggests a long life, quality, and sophistication. It is an object
that has endured weather and use; were it to be anthropomorphized these
qualities frequently equate to wisdom and classiness. If you like this look but
you haven’t the time for something to naturally age, accelerate the process.
Learn how to encourage the growth of moss on a favorite piece of stone or
pottery using simple ingredients and a touch of patience. Kerry Ann McLean will
review the wonders of moss and demonstrate how to encourage its growth on terra
cotta and stone.  Leave with a pot that will soon be as verdant as the
Emerald Isles!
