Join us for the Kōen-Nai No Bonsai fundraiser to benefit the GSBF Clark Bonsai Collection at Shinzen. A wonderful weekend of bonsai including Curator-led walking lecture tours of the Spring Collection and Reserve Area; renowned bonsai master demonstrations; a Toko Kazari Competition; auctions and sales of local and statewide bonsai and pre-bonsai material and vendors of diverse wares (No table fees!)
The renovation of the Japanese Tea House in Shinzen Friendship Garden continues. This spring the new roof will be installed. With the help of Side Mukai, the damaged thatch has been removed and the design for the new substructure completed. Roofing contractors have been on site to recommend how to proceed. We hope to complete the new roof in March and then return to the updating and renovation of the interior. We are grateful to Judy Shehadey and Donna Schiefer, and the volunteers from the Central High West Interact Club, as well as other volunteers. This treasure for our Garden will once again be a show piece of our Garden.
