What you'll learn in this garden class:

Bonsai is the ancient Japanese art form of miniature trees in containers. It is an art form that helps connect us to nature. Through this process, it strengthens our spirit. This is why Bonsai can be a figurative mirror image of the grower.

With an open heart and mind, students can start their own journey of personal growth through the art of bonsai taught by Bonsai Master Julian Velasco. Learn the artistic, philosophical, horticultural, and technical process of designing, planting, and maintaining your very own bonsai.

The bonsai participants will develop and take home are sub-tropical bonsai, so they are perfect for indoor apartment growing! With Julian’s guidance and supervision, students will learn how to prune, shape, maintain and re-pot their bonsai. Bonsai tools will be available for use during the class.

Price includes all materials (Bonsai tree, Bonsai container and soil).

Such a fun class. Julian was a great teacher and our Bonsai looks so cute!

I found the content very useful. Also we were given very nice bonsai trees to work on and take home. Because 7 people were expected, and only 3. came, the instructor waited 15 minutes for late-comers, non of whom arrived. If any of those canceled, you should have notified the instructor, so he wouldn’t have waited so long to start. Also, not fair to him, since he had to drag 4 extra, trees and equipment which he then had to take back with him. This was the first Course Horse class I’ve attended…hope you do better with the attendance issue next time.

It was awesome… The instructor gave everyone the personal attention we needed, he was patient, attentive and answered questions thoughtfully and thoroughly . He was very knowledgeable on the topic. He encouraged feedback and he gave a contact for follow up should we have further questions or concerns.
