  • Tai Ji at the Gardens, Th. 7/16
    Thursday, July 16
    6:30 - 7:30pm
    Graeser Family Education Center
    $15, $10 WBG members (use code WBGMEMBER at checkout to receive discount)
     
    Waterfront Botanical Gardens brings a new series to our Wellness Program with Tai Ji at the Gardens. Also written as ‘Tai Chi’, this low-impact, slow-motion exercise is often described as "meditation in motion." From the air-conditioned comfort of inside the Graeser Family Education Center, enjoy a sense of being outdoors in the Gardens with views out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. Don’t worry about humidity, mosquitoes, or rain this July!
     
    The Chen style of Tai Ji is for all participant levels and will be practiced during the hour-long, early evening session. The Chen style has a mixture of fast and slow, and hard and soft movements. Grand Master Mingye Ding will lead, with assistance from Yueling Zhang.
     
    Wear comfortable, loose clothing that will not restrict your range of motion. You may practice barefoot or in lightweight shoes with thin soles that allow you to feel the floor (running shoes are unsuitable).
    We will follow social-distancing and supply lightweight, disposable facemasks.

  • Introduction to Bonsai, Sun. 8/16
    Sunday, August 16
    2 - 3:15 pm
    Graeser Family Education Center
    $15 / $10 WBG members (use code WBGMEMBER at checkout to receive discount)
     
    Lee Squires, a bonsai grower for over 48 years with around 50 trees in his collection, will lead an introduction to bonsai lecture in anticipation of WBG’s Japanese Garden project.

    Lee will share the history of bonsai and what makes a tree or plant a bonsai. He will go over indoor vs. outdoor bonsai to clear up any confusion about where they may be successfully grown, how to start a bonsai, and what artistic “rules” you should follow. He will discuss in-depth the five basic styles of bonsai, pot selection, proper tools, soil composition, fertilizing, pest control, potting and repotting, displaying your bonsai, and winter care.

    Several bonsai will be on display and their creation discussed. The cost of bonsai will be a topic for those interested in growing their own or purchasing an already finished plant. Finally, Lee will hold a raffle giveaway for a tropical elephant bush bonsai -- perfect for a specimen houseplant.
     
    Social distancing and facemasks will be required during this indoor lecture program.
