Did just a bit of pruning on my tiny bonsai, but picked up some critical tools today - most importantly the books so I know the basics about what I'm doing :P
So excited, my favorite is by far the juniper (the one on the left) which my partner gave to me. But I also really like the Chinese Elm (ulmus parviflora) which is 2nd to the right.
Might do a bit of shaping with some wire tonight, but mostly just focused on sun and water right now :)
@slackz I received an azalea bonsai for Valentine's Day and I'm really nervous about keeping it alive but trying to take it easy!
My partner had a really good attitude about it... if something goes a bit amiss, it's a learning experience. But with decent care, should be reasonably straightforward to keep your little tree healthy
If you're down, super interested in looking at photos / updates if you tag me. Cheers! :)
@slackz i'll go through my media and tag you, and post an update later :) and thanks for the link! I've just been reading over the advice and instructions that came with the tree, but they don't give me much confidence.
OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
