We Need Your Support

The Bonsai Garden at Lake Merritt (BGLM) has been raising funds for its Garden Revitalization Project (GRO). To date, over 62% of the $100,000 goal has been contributed to make GRO possible. But, there is a way to go yet. This project aims to upgrade the display benches and stands, watering system, pathways, and much more, in order to meet the challenges of caring for and maintaining the historic and legacy bonsai collection in a professional and museum quality manner.

As part of this effort, BGLM has initiated a commemorative engraved brick fundraiser drive in which individuals, clubs and businesses can purchase a variety of state of the art engraved bricks for $150, $250 or $500, and the proceeds will go towards the GRO Project. The lifetime engraved bricks will be installed in a special location adjacent to the paved pathways throughout the bonsai garden.

We need to sell 35 engraved bricks by the end of October 2018. On November 1, 2018, BGLM plans to submit its initial production order for the engraved bricks and schedule installation soon afterwards. So, now is the time to show your support!

If you have any questions about the ordering process and/or quality of the bricks, contact George Haas at 707-762-9154 or gwhaas@comcast.net.
