Valley Bonsai Society Activities


Our meetings are normally scheduled for the third Saturday of each month and are held at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore at 2:00 pm. We encourage attendees to bring a tree to show off or to be 'styled'.

The meetings typically last 2 hours, with the first hour being used for a demo followed by a questions and answers session and the second hour is spent admiring members' trees and offering advise on styling, repotting, etc.
