The Nebraska Bonsai Society is
dedicated to advancing the art of bonsai throughout the state of Nebraska and
surrounding areas. Their mission is to promote and inspire enjoyment in
the study of bonsai through practice, education and camaraderie.
Lauritzen Gardens is pleased to host the club's spring
exhibition from April 30 through May 2, 2021. Because these miniaturized trees behave just like landscape
trees, the Nebraska Bonsai Society expects to show off some beautiful blooming
The exhibition will be housed in the
lobby of the visitor and education center, where you can feel the zen
behind this ancient living art. Members of the club will be on hand to answer
questions and will offer some bonsai materials for sale.
About the show: The art of bonsai cannot
exist without science. For a tree to grow in a pot, it needs soil, water, air
and light - in the correct amounts. But, like people or pets, some trees are
very adaptable; others are more difficult to please. Members of the Nebraska
Bonsai Society love to share their passion for the art of styling trees with
others - and can help you better understand both the art and the science of
bonsai in Nebraska.
The club meets monthly and attendees range from beginners to
life-long bonsai practitioners. Each "study group" meeting starts with an
educational program, followed by time to work on trees with the help of mentors
and other members. Visit nebonsai.org to
learn more about the club.
Admission to the exhibition is included with paid garden
admission of $10+tax/adults, $5+tax/children 3 to 12 and FREE for garden
members and children under three. Timed
tickets are required and may be reserved at lauritzengardens.org/tickets.
