|VANCOUVER ISLAND BONSAI SOCIETY|
For many of our members both new and of long standing, opportunities at our monthly meetings for instruction and hands-on experience in the art of bonsai was too brief. This mentoring project was started to provide those people with a chance to learn more.
By asking for help among our more accomplished members, we were able to put together a list of people willing to show eager students with less experience some of the on-going processes of training bonsai in-situ, in return for helping with more mundane gardening chores. These exchange arrangements are set up by the participants to suit their individual needs.
To date members who are involved are quite happy with results. We are integrating the different levels of talent and experience to produce a more informed and experienced membership.
If you would like to become involved in the mentoring program please see Bob Taylor at one of our meetings or email us and let us know.
