That collection of approximately 120 old trees included several priceless examples of bonsai art created by California artists over the past 70 years. The Shinzen Japanese Friendship Garden in Woodward Park successfully brought the collection to Fresno. The bonsai garden was designed by Bob Boro and built in large part, through the labor of the Fresno Bonsai Society. The CBCS displays 28 trees which are rotated on a seasonal basis with varying themes. A brief explanation of the horticulture and art of bonsai will follow as time permits. ABOUT DR.
