Gary Wood gets around. Really around. Gary is a bonsai expert from Alabama. He has traveled extensively during his bonsai teaching career. Oregon almost became a second home for a few years where he worked with Telperion Farms to develop a top notch bonsai nursery. Gary comes to Iowa three times a year to work with two study groups. He was here in March and again in June. However, Gary added an extra visit to Iowa in August to judge the Iowa State Fair and lead a workshop in Indianola.
