World Bonsai Day Demonstration

May 11-12

10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Join the Blue Ridge Bonsai Society (BRBS) for a presentation of a program in the pavilion of the Bonsai Exhibition Garden in addition to the seasonal debut of the Arboretum’s trees in the Garden.   The program this year will include BRBS members working on their own trees, demonstrating techniques and answering questions.  In addition, there will be a display of “suiseki”, or viewing stones, an ancillary art form to bonsai in which small naturally occurring or shaped rocks are appreciated for their aesthetic or decorative value.

The BRBS program will be presented on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12 from 10 am to 4 pm each day.  The Bonsai Exhibition Garden is open from 9 am to 5 pm, mid-May through November.  For more information on the World Bonsai Day program, contact blueridgebonsaisociety@gmail.com .
