Next regular meeting June 20
Bonsai Expert Harold Johnson
is GWC’s June Guest Speaker

Demystifying the ancient Asian pastime of bonsai is the goal of GWC June meeting guest speaker Harold Johnson.

Devoting himself to bonsai since being introduced to the art form in 1992, Johnson even spent 10 days in Japan, focused on expanding his bonsai knowledge.

Harold now presents his bonsai expertise in local, state, regional and national arenas. “Conducting beginner courses is an opportunity to watch individuals develop their interest, knowledge and skills,” he says.  “I consider it a pleasure to practice and share what I’ve learned, particularly for a group well-versed in horticulture.” 

For the past 25 years, he has served the local bonsai community in many leadership positions, particularly as coordinator of Triangle Bonsai Society programs.

Johnson is also a Durham County Master Gardener and hosts a website titled, "Getting Dirty In Your Garden."
