Bonsai for beginners series offered by N.C. Cooperative Extension in Currituck


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 $30.00 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 10:00 to 11:30 am. at the NC Cooperative Extension Currituck Center, located at 120 Community Way in Barco, NC.
