Tropical Bonsai Care with Danny Coffey from Tree the People
Experience the transcendent world of horticulture at the Homestead Gardens Tropical Bonsai Care workshop. Led by the incomparable Danny Coffey of Tree the People, this immersive journey will immerse you in the art of bonsai, instilling the reverence and finesse that this ancient Japanese craft demands. Under Danny’s expert guidance, participants will learn to create and nurture their very own bonsai trees. Starting with a selection of bonsai starters, students will carefully choose their tree and, with the provided pot, soil, and wire, they will skillfully shape and train their bonsai. By the end of the workshop, each participant will proudly take home the bonsai they have cultivated.
About your instructor: Daniel Coffey
Daniel Coffey’s bonsai creations are not your typical garden center finds. His unique blend of Japanese, American, and Chinese styles make for a whimsical and avant-garde display of this plant-based art form. With a love for all trees, Daniel’s passion for bonsai started during a multi-year apprenticeship with Junichiro Tanaka in Nagoya, Japan. He then went on to further his skills with an internship at the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum in Washington, D.C. Now, Daniel shares his experience and techniques while maintaining his studio in Asheville’s River Arts District and his private home-based nursery in Rutherford. With his impressive work and undeniable enthusiasm for the art of bonsai, it’s no wonder that Homestead Gardens has also taken an interest in his talents.
