We have some amazing club meetings lined up, so mark your calendars for the third Saturday of each month. You won’t want to miss them! And if you want to dive deeper into the art of bonsai, join our study group on the first Saturday of each month. You will learn a lot from other bonsai enthusiasts and share your own insights.
