You can observe or participate....even if you have a tree or plant you just want to discuss or get ideas how to style, pot or repot, trim, etc., then do the work later at home.

Reminder to BRING the following items if you plan to do the work at Laurel Manor:
Plastic or garbage bag to completely cover the table
Newspaper and a cardboard or plastic box, if you need to repot
Tools, Wire, Soil, Pots, Plastic Screen, Plastic Gloves, Tree/Plant, Water Spray Bottle
Notebook & Pen or Pencil
(Must clean up any messes prior to leaving the Adams Room - Broom & Dust Pan are provided by Laurel Manor)

What is a "Dig In The Dirt" workshop?
 It is our club workshop day where members can bring their trees with questions for discussion, and/or work on them while someone is there to help, OR just to observe and takes notes.
What is meant by "work on them" is styling suggestions, trimming, wiring, pot selection, potting, re-potting (yes, it is different from potting) and any bonsai related questions.
SUGGESTION For All Members:
Schedule yourself a little quiet time to sit & study your tree so you will have an idea of what you want it to look like before arriving at the workshop.
If you have no idea, that's what your club members are there help you get started.
Even if you do not have a need to wire, pot, repot, create or style one of your plants into a tree, there is a lot to learn by observing & ask questions at each and every workshop. We are trying new ideas at the workshops. If you have suggestions or questions, please contact an officer and let them know.
