Nursery Crawl

Join us for a nursery crawl at Mesquite Valley Nursery on January 18, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.  We will then move on to Magic Gardens Nursery.


We’ll try to scout both places prior to the event and send out an email highlighting our finds.  Plan to purchase a five-gallon specimen for Lindsay Shiba’s workshops Feb. 7th and 8th or bring them to our monthly meeting workshops.  David Meyer will hold a workshop at his house later in February, with a focus on trees for our late April show.

Guest Artist Workshops

Lindsay Shiba will be in Tucson for another of his fabulous workshops on Friday and Saturday, February 7 and 8, 2020 at David Meyer's home.

The fees are the same as last year, $100 for a full day.  You can work on two trees and bring a third for his critique and ideas.  On Saturday, we have morning sessions from 9-12, and afternoon sessions from 1-4. The fee is $50 per session.  You can work on one tree, with ideas and suggestions for a second tree.  We welcome observers for all sessions, $25 all day Friday and $15 each session on Saturday.  Our enrollment forms will be emailed to you next month and will be available at our January meeting.  This is your opportunity to study with a master teacher for a fraction of the cost of going to a California convention.  We urge our new members to attend and wiring assistance will be available from our mentors. 

At our Sunday meeting on Feb. 9th, Lindsay will give us a lecture and demonstration, after which the tree will be raffled.  Pres. Rod says that he will pick out “challenging” material!

Field Trips

Field trips to Gardner Canyon and Rosemont Canyon are sponsored in the fall and spring, for collection of Yamadori under permit.


Saturday, February 22, 2020 Workshop in David's garage.  Mentors will be on hand to assist; bring as many plants as you want, of any size, untrained or trained material.  Potting mixes will be available for purchase, as will containers both new and used.  Ideal time for potting junipers and most evergreen species

Sunday, March 28, 2020 Special Workshop at Greg's home, "Planting a forest of elms on a slab".  Members only, advance registration required.
