Saturday, August 14, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Bonsai West Tour

The Bonsai West collection is one of the oldest historic collections of bonsai in the country.  Michael Levin, owner and founder of Bonsai West, will talk about these trees – several over one hundred years old – and the original artists who created them.  The stories of Mr. Levin’s 28 years of growing bonsai and creating this beautiful nursery, and his experiences with the original artists and the history and culture of this ancient art coalesce during this fascinating tour, sponsored by Tower Hill Botanic Garden.  Levin also discusses basic bonsai care techniques and growing your own bonsai.  $15 for Tower Hill members, $20 for nonmembers.  You may register at
