LivingSocial's 918 F Street • Washington, DC

Use between Thursday, September 12Friday, November 15

What you get

  • Learn Bonsai Basics!
  • Prune, Plant & Take Home Your Own Fukien Tee Tree
  • Hands-On Instruction from Horticulturist Kate Lee

More than just funky little trees you spot in greenhouses and adorning windowsills, bonsai is an aesthetic and spiritual tradition that reaches back to 600 AD China. Learn the fundamentals of the ancient practice when you pay $35 for admission to a Bonsai for Beginners class, taught by horticulturist Kate Lee of Capital City Farm Co. at LivingSocial's 918 F Street. With hands-on assistance from Kate, you will artfully prune and properly plant your own Fukien tea tree in a shallow ceramic pot. A flowering plant native to Southern China, Fukien tea trees are popular for bonsai due to the interesting twists and turns their trunks take as they grow. At the end of this class you will have your very own sculpted bonsai to take home and display.
