Welcome to our website
The Arrowsmith Bonsai Club was founded in 2002, by David Rowe and a few Bonsai enthusiasts. Today this Vancouver Island Bonsai group consists of an active membership ranging from beginner to advanced practitioners. Members work together with regular Bonsai Demonstrations of techiques and practice in the Art of Bonsai. The Bonsai club focus is on learning together and having fun with Bonsai. Most Bonsai meetings involve members actually working on their trees. During the summer we often hold meetings at various club members Bonsai Gardens to view the Bonsai and share each others progress. Some of the more advanced members contribute as mentors to assist newer members. Members present Bonsai Shows and regular sales of Bonsai material. The club activity promotes Bonsai Education along with continuous improvement of our Bonsai collections. Membership draws from the Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, up to Comox areas of Vancouver Island Bonsai enthusiasts.
Regular Monthly meetings are held on the second saturday of each month, September - June. The meetings are from 1-4 pm and held at the Nanoose Community Centre. Everyone is welcome!
