The Como Conservatory needs our help to complete the funding for the Japanese Garden experience.We need your help to reach our overall goal.
The Minnesota Bonsai Society has long been a partner in Bonsai with the Como Conservatory. We are thrilled with the upgrades to the Japanese Garden Experience to include a wonderful bonsai display. The MBS has already committed to donate $1000 and our individual members have donated $675. Our ultimate goal is $5000 so we need your help to raise $3325 to get us the rest of the way.
Breaking ground in late 2011, the $2.5 million addition to the historic Marjorie McNeely Conservatory will create year-round viewing of its nationally-acclaimed Bonsai collection and Japanese garden. This new wing will feature a Bonsai Gallery, outdoor Bonsai Garden and Terrace, and realigned Pine Grove walk leading to the Como Ordway Memorial Japanese Garden (click here to review the plans).
Your donation will help make a difference in getting the project completed. In addition when we reach our goal, a large plaque will be displayed in the exhibit proudly reflecting our group's support of this wonderful gallery.
