Wednesday, 6/16, Karen Harkaway, Mac McMullen, Charles Larke and I drove down and visited "Ski" Dombrowski at his bonsai center in Salem, NJ. Some might remember "Ski" visiting us this past winter. He is a member of the Chadds Ford Bonsai Club, is retired and sells his bonsai, teaches people personally and provides presentations and demonstrations. We will have him give a demonstration at a future Saturday morning workshop.
The costs for his trees are very reasonable. He has been involved in bonsai for more than 35 years and really knows his stuff. We bought a couple of trees and will be going down to purchase a couple of more. It takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to get there but the directions are simple.
I'll let the membership know when we are going back if you would like to join us. He has both developed bonsai and pre-bonsai material. This is a very unique place and a very unique bonsai artist.
