It took place on Thursday evening, April 18, 2019, at the Novato Charter School’s Project Night 2019, where Markus Mieritz gave his 8th grade project ‘Learning the Art of Bonsai’. The audience of classmates, family and friends, including the 7th grade students, was full to capacity with standing room only. There were 26 8th grade students in total, presenting their individual projects, ranging from Italian Cuisine to Short Film Production.
Markus’ presentation was all about bonsai and his year long endeavor to become a bonsai hobbyist. He said the project led him to find “the best bonsai club in California right here in Marin County.” Markus showed slides of his collection of bonsai. He thanked his mother for her support. He also thanked Marin Bonsai Club senior member, instructor and mentor Chris Ross for his coaching and patience. Markus received a huge applause from the audience and his classmates.
