You Make My Heart Sing

This spring, we invite you to share the gift of beauty. Our goal is to raise $25,000 by Sunday, May 9 to support the care of our bonsai that bring beauty to the hearts of so many. As a thank you for your contribution, we are offering four, Kusamono-making Experiences led by renowned artist Young Choe.

With Mom in Mind

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Making a kusamono with your mom, either nearby or from afar, or in her memory, would be a lovely way to make your hearts sing.
