These are open meetings and all persons interested are welcome, the topics are varied but mainly consist in general care and welfare of Bonsai. Members are encouraged to bring in trees to work on, and the membership covers everyone from the experienced to the most basic beginner. Even if you perhaps are not looking to join a club but have a bonsai and need some help – come along to one of our evenings and we will aim to help.
