What is Tomodachi??? Tomodachi means “Friends”

Mel Ikeda will host his Tomodachi friends’ gathering for the styling of bonsai. Mel has lined up his friends with a goal to end up with 20 or so participants whose styled bonsai will be donated to the silent auctions. Any one is welcome to join in on the fun. Bring a tree or buy from one of the vendors, style it amongst friends and donate it to the silent auction.
