General Meeting

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month (there is no meeting in January) typically at Hamline United Methodist Church, 1514 Englewood Ave., St. Paul. Due to construction at this location, the meeting location will be changing in 2019 until construction at Hamline is complete.

Our meetings are open to members, their guests, and all visitors. The doors open at 6:30. Meetings start at 7:00 and generally last about 2 hours. See the main menu page for a description of upcoming meeting topics.

• Our extensive library is available at the general meetings to members only. Please note that the library will not be available until construction is complete at Hamline.
• There are usually vendors at meetings selling soil, tools, pots, and sometimes trees.
• We hold a raffle at most monthly meetings. Bring in a tree to show off at a meeting and get a free raffle ticket!

Visitors are always welcome to attend General Meetings. It is a great way to begin learning about and enjoy bonsai.
