ANNUAL BONSAI CLUB SHOW TO HIGHLIGHT TINY TREES July 21-22


 

Thirty-ninth edition of yearly exhibition will mark return to familiar venue.



The beauty of trees in their summer glory will be a high point of the 40th annual Columbus Bonsai Society‘s annual show. The Bonsai Society is an educational and social organization for those interested in the classic Japanese form of horticulture, and presents a show each year as a way of educating the public about the art form.
This edition of the annual event marks the return to a very familiar venue, the Franklin Park Conservatory & Botanical Garden.
The club’s President, Zack Clayton commented “Our organization has a long history of partnership and cooperation with Franklin Park…we are very pleased to be able to host our show there. The connection with plants and horticulture is very obvious, and we have always found that the Conservatory is so easy for visitors to get to, and so much there to do besides our show.”
During the two day event club members will display many examples of the miniature trees they have patiently trained and nurtured. Workshops and demonstrations will take place during the show, so participants can get a hands on feel for what is involved in creating a bonsai. Several vendors will be on site and offering a wide range of plant stock, pottery and tools needed for bonsai work.
Admission to the show is free and open to the public, a free will donation will be accepted. The bonsai show will be contained in the lower level, class room areas of the Conservatory. Admission to this specific area is free. The Columbus Bonsai Society encourages those attending the show to enjoy the many displays and exhibits that a paid admission to the Conservatory delivers.
Demonstrations are free as well, though workshops will have a modest fee to cover cost of materials used. Free onsite parking is available, and the show venue is served by public transportation.
A complete schedule of demonstrations, workshops and other activities will be posted on the Club’s website:
