  • We begin at the Moso grove of Tobaris Holmes in Unadilla. Tobaris and his family will show you the grounds and talk of “learning from mistakes” and future plans.
  • Next we will head to The Columns of Georgia in Hawkinsville for real “Southern Luncheon” (included in ticket price)

Jaap is a renowned maker of bamboo bows both traditional Japanese or any style. We will tour their groves and they will demonstrate their modern Taiwanese bamboo processing machines for splitting poles and planing the split for perfect lamination.
