See 100 mini trees at Ann Arbor's Matthaei Botanical Gardens this weekend
46th annual Bonsai Show & Sale is back
ANN ARBOR – When I was a kid, I was obsessed with bonsai trees.
Turns out, there's a whole society here dedicated to the art form that was created in Japan more than 1,000 years ago, and every year for almost a half century it's been putting on the Ann Arbor Bonsai Society Show & Sale at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
Not only will 100 different bonsai trees be on display, but there will be a kids' bonsai class and trees will be for sale for you to take home and marvel for years to come at their tiny size.
What to expect:
- Times: Saturday 10 a.m. through Sunday 4:30 p.m.
- Cost: $3 payable at the door (Children 12 and under are free)
- Kids' bonsai class (Sunday at 10 a.m.)
- Raffles, demos, vendors selling trees, pots, tools and more!
To reserve a space for the kids' class on Sunday, call the Flower Market at 734-269-2660 to register. The cost is $25 per child.
