Since its founding in 1971 our Club has been dedicated to the education of its members and the general public in the art and culture of bonsai. We are an informal group ranging from novice to advanced and invite all who are interested to join us.

We hold our meetings on the second Tuesday of each month, except December and August, at the Bethany Congregational Church, 556 N Hope Ave, Santa Barbara, CA 93110. Social time and bonsai questions at 6:45pm, announcements prior to the program which begins at 7:30 pm. Guests and visitors are welcome to attend.

Meetings provide the opportunity to share information concerning the growth, styling and propagation of bonsai. We invite nationally known guest speakers and demonstrators as well as draw on our own knowledgeable members for our monthly evening programs.

Advanced classes with top instructors from around California are scheduled eight times a year. Open workshops for all members are also scheduled. We have a bonsai show and plant sale each spring at the Trinity Lutheran Church (Santa Barbara) and a Bonsai Demonstration and Exhibit at the Ventura Botanical Gardens each summer.

We hope to see you often at our monthly meetings and events.
