Bonsai is the ancient art form of growing and training a potted plant into a miniature tree. It is often seen as difficult and steeped in tradition, however, it can be highly rewarding. Join us on Tuesday, April 30, 2024 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.. at the N.C. Cooperative Extension Currituck Center. You will learn how to:

  • properly care for,
  • prune,
  • transplant,
  • shape,
  • and style bonsai trees.

The fee is $40.00 and includes instruction, a container, a pruning tool, and a juniper bonsai, which you will create during the class. You will not only go home with a bonsai that you have created on your own but more importantly, with enough “hands-on” experience and information to serve as a solid foundation for learning more.
