Oak Shadows Mobile Home Park Clubhouse


Uncover Bonsai Treasures In Your Yard

Local grower David Anderson will reveal how to uncover treasures in your own yard – bonsai treasures, that is. His teaching demonstration at the Saturday, May 7 meeting of the Mother Lode Bonsai Club is titled “Urban Collecting.”

“Plants in your yard and around your local neighborhood with the potential of becoming outstanding bonsai trees are often overlooked,” said Anderson. “With a careful eye, you can select and save unwanted plants and then, transform them into admired works of living art. It takes imagination and vision to see what the discarded plant stock can be.”

The monthly member meeting begins at 10:00 a.m., followed by the club demonstration. Location is the Oak Shadows Mobile Home Park Clubhouse, 1330 Calaveritas Road (off Mt. Ranch Road) in San Andreas. For more information, go to the club website at www.motherlodebonsai.org or contact Bob Dean, club president at (209) 754-5887.
