Bonsai Celebrated at Smith-Gilbert Gardens Event

Kennesaw’s Smith-Gilbert Gardens is hosting its first ever Day of Bonsai Event on Saturday, November 15, from 10 am to 4 pm. Garden staff and Bonsai Study Group volunteers will be introducing their bonsai collection to both laypersons and bonsai aficionados.


The event begins with a short presentation recognizing founder Robert Gilbert, DDS, and his personal bonsai collection, now housed at the Gardens. Following the presentation, an all-day demonstration by renowned bonsai expert Rodney Clemons will be held in the exhibit area. Other activities include a silent auction of bonsai-related items and a sales area featuring trees, pots, tools, books and more. Visitors may plan to enjoy a wonderful picnic opportunity in the garden.



“It has taken months of dedication by volunteers and staff to prepare for this event,” said Garden Executive Director Ann Parsons. “Everyone has been working hard to bring this collection up to its present quality.”


Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and active duty military, $5 for children ages 6 – 12; children 5 and under are free with parent or grandparent. Garden members are admitted for free.
