Programs
Our Program Chairman works hard for you to provide an interesting program for each meeting which may include one of the following:

  • Knowledgeable speakers who may discuss bonsai styling, techniques, tools, fertilizing, pest control,display, etc. We try to have bonsai masters as often as possible.
  • A demonstration on repotting, pruning, or displaying bonsai.
  • Display tables where members bring their own tree(s) to give and obtain advice or discuss special problems they may have encountered.
  • A critique where we can learn what is right or wrong with the styling of our trees and how to correct it.
  • Slides or movies of a member’s trip to a convention or dig that we couldn’t make, or of a member’s trip to a foreign country that would, of course, include bonsai.

Suggestions are always welcome for programs. If there is a topic about which you would like to see a program – let us know and we will try to arrange it.

Workshops
This is one of the most important reasons for membership in a bonsai club. During the year, the club invites visiting bonsai masters to hold special workshops. These workshops are usually held at a convenient location and the class is kept to a minimum of 8–10 students. Only club members are allowed to attend these workshops. Deposits for available spaces are taken ahead of time. You should never be shy about taking workshop classes. This is one of the best ways to learn new techniques, as each visiting master has a specialty in the artform.

Library
The club library has an extensive selection of bonsai books which will help beginners as well as enhance the knowledge of its advanced enthusiasts. Books may be signed out to any member on a monthly basis. Books must be returned by the next meeting. Donations of any used or back issues of books are always appreciated. As a club member, you will automatically receive the quarterly publication of Florida Bonsai Magazine.
