Since its origin in 1971, the Bonsai Club of Santa Barbara has been dedicated to the education of its members and the general public in the art and culture of bonsai. An informal group ranging from novice to advanced, the Club invites all who are interested to join.
Meetings provide the opportunity to share information concerning the growth, styling and propagation of bonsai, and to stay current on what is happening in the world of bonsai. The Club invites nationally known guest speakers and demonstrators as well as draws on the knowledge of its members for the monthly evening meetings.
Advanced classes with top instructors from around California are scheduled eight times a year. Open workshops for all members are also scheduled.
The Club holds its meetings on the second Tuesday of each month, except December and August. The meetings begin at 7:00 pm at the Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Ave., Room 7.
