Spreading the Bonsai Love in Central Alabama!

We hope you’ll take time to look around on our site, but even better, we’d love to see you at one of our workshops or meetings.

Our workshops are held the first Saturday of each month February through November 8:00-11:30 AM  in the Naphcare Education Building at Aldridge Gardens on Lorna Road. Our monthlu meetings are held at 7:00 PM the second Tuesday evening monthly, the only exceptions being July (when our trees are too hot) and December (when our trees are too cold).

If you’re not sure what we’re about, just look at some of our News pages. We post photos of everything we do together.
