    The Cape Fear Bonsai Society is hosting an Introduction to Bonsai Workshop on Sunday, July 3, 2022, at 9:00 AM at the Arboretum.  The presenter is Morris “Moe” Einhorn, President of the Cape Fear Bonsai Society and a student of bonsai for over 40 years.

    The workshop will take place in the auditorium at the Arboretum and will be limited to eight (8) individuals and ends by 1 PM.

    Here is an outline of what the workshop entails:

    Workshop: Introduction to Bonsai

    Each participant will choose and be provided a bonsai, established in a container, ready for training and care, and instruction.

    Topics covered during this session will include:

    Basic tools required for bonsai.

    Pruning/training techniques.

    Watering and fertilizing requirements.

    General information to ensure successful bonsai care.

    You will go home with your new bonsai to enjoy and the knowledge to keep it well cared for many years to come.

    Cost for this workshop, including the bonsai and instruction, is $60.00. 

    Again, just 8 slots are available.  Sign up for the workshop here but pay CASH ($60) at the door.
