Introduction to Bonsai – The Art of Training Miniature Trees
Jeff Nottonson, owner of Whitford House Bed & Breakfast in Addison, and a Photographer and Marketing professional, has been practicing the art of Bonsai for thirty years. Bonsai, the art of cultivating trees in shallow pots, is a Japanese and Chinese tradition of “Living Sculpture”. Part Horticulture, part Art and part Spirituality with Nature, Bonsai encourages patience, creativity and responsibility for our natural world. While this introductory class will allow you to take home a small “tree in a pot”, the training and nurturing may continue over a lifetime or more.
