    About Us   

We are a non-profit organization whose intent it is to promote the appreciation, knowledge, and cultivation of Bonsai through education, publicity, display and any other means which would advance the Art of Bonsai.

Established in Jan 14, 1976 by a core of 11 enthusiasts we have grown to 40 plus members hailing from Chico and the surrounding communities.

We conduct monthly meeting, put our bonsai on display once every spring, and hold other social events throughout the year.

 

Join Us At Our Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings occur on the second Sunday of every month at 10:30 am, and are held in the Meeting Room, at the Chico Library, located at 1108 Sherman Ave, Chico, CA.  

Monthly meetings cover a wide range of topics, from plant cultivation, soil mixtures, fertilizer and pest control to creative styling and staging of specimen plants.

Our members and presenters bring unusual, unique plants not often available elsewhere.

Our plant round table features members’ bonsai plant material accompanied by an informative discussion of their local cultivation requirements and pearls of wisdom by our local plant experts.

Our meetings are finished off by a raffle and silent auctions of common and not so common bonsai plant material.
