The “Living Art of Bonsai”

Another highlight of the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair is the Kauai Bonsai Club’s amazing display in the Agriculture Exhibit Tent.

Growing Bonsai trees is an art that requires a generous amount of patience. By cutting the branches back drastically, new growth is encouraged to grow. Over time, the artist  gradually shapes the tree. The goal of growing a Bonsai is to create a miniature, realistic representation of nature.
