World Bonsai Day 2023

D & L Nursery
Address: 6550 S.E. 153rd Court, Ocklawaha, Florida 32179

It is going to be a fun day and all you have to do is show up! But, if you want, you could bring a tree to put in the exhibit, a lawn chair to sit back and relax in while you’re munching down on all the good food that will be here, and maybe a donation for this year’s charity. And if you want to, you could bring something for the lunch buffet. Gather up what you want to bring to put in the raffle and/or auction as well! This year, there will be a silent auction.
