Since 1972, a handful of New Orleanians have been celebrating and practicing bonsai, the Japanese art of cultivating miniature trees. The Greater New Orleans Bonsai Society has translated this ancient art form to our present-day gardens, hosting regular classes for beginners and experts alike. NolaVie’s Brian Friedman invited Masters Program Director Jim Osborne into the studio to talk about all things bonsai.
