    Trees have been highly valued by humans since the beginning of time. In fact, the word "paradise" is derived from the Persian word "pardes," which translates to "a park planted with trees." Research has shown that patients heal more quickly when they have a view of trees.

    The best bonsai are grown from seed because there is no trace left on the plant of the cultivation methods used to train it into its final shape. Often, trees and shrubs need to undergo some sort of cooling period or stratification process in order to sprout, but the seeds contained in the Bonsai Village do not. They are quick to sprout with only water and sunlight!

    Special thanks to 2nd Generation Bonsai Master, Frank J. Mihalic, for contributing to the instructions for the Bonsai Village. He is also the author of the book Bonsai for Kids, which is available in many different languages. Please visit his website at www.bonsaionlinemagazine.com or www.bonsaiforkids.com


    Testimonials

    "Our Family Testers found Bonsai Village to be an awesome way to grow a unique little piece of paradise.

It has ample room for kids' to create a special landscape with meditation stones, a Buddha statue, bonsai decals, plant stakes, and natural gravel. The kids simply adore it!" Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award 2007

    "Nothing says springtime like new buds peeking out from rich soil. Teaching children an appreciation of what is required to bring this about is what the Bonsai Village is all about. Our testers loved planning and planting their garden, and then giving it the care it needed to flourish. Of course this is not an instant gratification type of product. For some testers the waiting time was just too much, which might be more of an indictment of our society that anything else. For those with the patience to allow nature to run its course, the results were quite satisfying." The National Parenting Center 2007
