Please support the Portland Bonsai Village

Friends,

The Portland Bonsai Village has just launched an Indiegogo campaign to help raise funds for our new programs. If you don’t know about Indiegogo, it’s like the alternative, quirky version of Kickstarter. The Village has always been a grassroots endeavor, and today we’re seeking your support to grow our grassy shoots a wee bit higher.

We’re creating the first bonsai community outside of Japan where I live in Portland, Oregon to better share bonsai to the greater community, with programs that stretch from Village bonsai classes for serious aficionados, to a CO-OP offering bonsai products made here, to bringing bonsai into classrooms to nurture the seed of beauty and responsibility in youth. And this campaign is the beginning of that dream.

Here’s our short introductory video on the Indiegogo site, featuring Matt Reel, Bobby Curttright, and myself (which clearly proves that we’re not actors posing as bonsai artists):

And then please take a look at our full Indiegogo campaign, where you’ll find not only a detailed outline of what we hope to achieve and the great perks for helping us out with a donation, but also the ridiculous outtakes/bloopers of the pitch video. Here’s the Indiegogo campaign:

Help bonsai artists create their Village

Your support would mean a lot to us. We need your help so we can run cool programs to share this beautiful art.

Thank you for your time, support, and your passion to create the Portland Bonsai Village!
