Bonsai is the ancient art form of growing and training a potted plant into a miniature tree. It is often seen as difficult and steeped in tradition, however, it can be highly rewarding. Join us on Tuesday, April 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the NC Cooperative Extension Currituck Center, located at 120 Community Way in Barco, where you will learn how to properly care for, prune, transplant, shape, and style bonsai trees. The fee is $40 and includes instruction, a container, a pruning tool, and a juniper 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.
