August 4th

How do you begin a bonsai? Our august general meeting will be a program on how to select raw material to become bonsai. Not every nursery stock tree you run into has the potential to become good bonsai but with the right information, you can desseminate the best stock out of any bunch. After you learn how to determine what the best stock is, where do you find it? Part of the discussion will focus on how to obtain stock for bonsai. Join us for a useful and insightful discussion!

September Activities Updates:

Unfortunately, our Bonsai Intermediates for September has been cancelled. Please look forward to Bonsai Intermediates to be held again in October.

Our September general membership meeting on September 8th will be welcoming bonsai professional, Peter Warren, who hails from England.  Peter is internationally known and highly sought after bonsai professional.  Please join us to listen to Peter Warren give a presentation on the art of display.  The meeting will be held in the Main Meeting Room at the Roseville Public Library starting at 6:30 PM. The library closes at 9, so unfortunately, our meeting will have to end promptly and take leave by 8:45.  

Lastly, our last Bonsai Novice Workshops will be held on September 12th and 13th. We still need volunteers to sign up to assist novice workshop attendees with styling. You do not need to have extensive bonsai knowledge to assist people with styling their trees and more knowledgeable stylists will be there if you have questions. These workshops are fun for volunteers and for attendees alike. Please volunteer by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Volunteers like you help to grow your club!

Check back again soon!
