Bonsai is the art of growing and training a potted plant into a miniature tree. In this two-part, hands-on series, participants will learn how to properly care for, prune, transplant, shape and style bonsai trees. The fee for each course is $30 and includes: instruction, a container, a pruning tool and a bonsai, which you will create during the class. You will not only go home with a bonsai that you have created on your own, but more importantly, with enough “hands-on” experience and information to serve as a solid foundation for learning more.

Join us for part 1: “Indoor Bonsai” on May 31 and part 2: “Outdoor Bonsai” on June 13. Both classes will be held from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the NC Cooperative Extension Currituck Center, located at 120 Community Way in Barco.
