We look forward to seeing you at our next general meeting. It doesn't matter if you are new to bonsai, have been growing trees for years, or are just curious to see what this is all about; our club is comprised of a very diverse group of people at all skill levels. The common thread that brings us together is our enthusiasm and joy for bonsai.

We invite all who are interested to attend one of our general meetings. These meetings take place the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm in the Garden Center at Lake Merritt. More information can be found at our Meetings & Events page here. New guests are encouraged to attend the meetings and then decide if they would like to receive the benefits of full membership by paying dues.
