What Our Students Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our students do the talking!
“This place is great! I had a very negative experience with a different bonsai center when I first started getting interested. I had pretty much given up on pursuing bonsai as a hobby due to that experience however after meeting Bryan and Brad Russell I was welcomed into the world of bonsai with open arms. My interest in bonsai went from an interest to an addiction in a matter of months and the folks at the Bonsai Learning Center were there to provide classes, tools, supplies, and guidance and great advice.”Dane Smith
