Todd Hansen will be the featured speaker when the Long Hill Garden Club meets on Monday, Oct.27, at the Trumbull Library. The meeting begins at 11:30 a.m., and the program will start at 12:45 p.m.

Hansen’s presentation “Bonsai, Illusion vs. Reality,” will prove that Bonsai is not difficult. His philosophy is that if you can grow a houseplant, you can grow Bonsai. You just need more information. From design to horticulture, he will demystify Bonsai as well as all container gardening. His talk will include helpful information for all horticulture enthusiasts.

Hanson attended Colin Lewis’ Ho Yoku School of Bonsai where he received certification as an instructor. He has studied with many Bonsai artists from around the world. He is a past president and vice president of the Bonsai Society of Greater Hartford.
