Four Seasons Bonsai Club of Michigan welcomes bonsai master Jim Doyle, owner of Nature's Way Bonsai Nursery, to a demonstration, workshop and slide presentation at the club's annual show. Explore the ancient art of miniature Japanese trees at the club's biggest (and only once-a-year) event. See the bonsai exhibit and beginner-friendly presentations on growing your own bonsai. Bonsai, pots, tools, and accessories for sale. Enter bonsai raffles. One lucky winner will take home the Jim Doyle-styled demonstration bonsai at the close of the show.
Jim Doyle bio here.
Everything except the workshops are free of charge.
The show would not be possible without the generous support of Telly's Greenhouse and S&R Event Rental. Thank you both!
