In June of 1988, six people who shared a common interest in the ancient art of dwarf trees and whose experience ranged from practically nothing to over twenty years, met informally to discuss ways and means of sharing their collective skills and expanding local interest in this ancient oriental practice. From these meetings the NORTHEAST PENNSYLVANIA BONSAI SOCIETY was born.
Its objectives remain to provide a place for its members to come together to expand and share their knowledge and skills and to advance and promote interest in bonsai among the general public in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The club continues to educate the community each month by hosting meetings that provide information on all aspects of the earth.
The first meeting is always free and after that we ask for a small membership fee of $20 a year for individuals or $30 for a family. The membership fee goes to costs endured throughout the year for guest artists, teaching supplies and various goodies for meetings. Feel free to enjoy the site and drop us a line with questions. We hope to se you at a meeting soon!
