Meeting topics will be posted on The Newsletter page and social media prior to the meeting.

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

• 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.
