MOHAWK VALLEY BONSAI CLUB
will conduct its first 'BONSAI SEARCH PARTY' Sat Sep 10th at George's Nursery on Kirkland Ave., Clinton, NY just off Route 5 (Seneca Turnpike).
Club members, friends and guests will gather at 12 noon to begin the 'search & rescue' for good potential material for future bonsai. As we know bonsai material does not need to start out as prime grade-a landscape specimens, but rather is often found to be the forlorn, neglected, perhaps broken cast-off materials that others have passed by in the back corners of the nursery. Treasures, jewels and good bargains await us. Late Summer/Fall specials beckon us. This will be great fun. MUGO PINE, JAPANESE MAPLE, COTONEASTER , JUNIPERS - the list goes on.
Then, in October, we will bring our new acquisitions to our next club meeting for an Open Workshop to get expert advice and perhaps some seasonally appropriate work with these future masterpieces. We've talked about this when planning club activities - and now we're doing it.
Who says bonsai is not fun? Make it fun. Advance your bonsai skills with other folks who enjoy it the way you do. Not happy with the local club? Start a new one. We did it - and we're having a blast!! AND a bit of notice too.
