About GBS

The Gainesville Bonsai Society was established in 1973 and transitioned to a study group focus in 2012.

Membership in the study group is by invitation, but observation at meetings is open to the public, except when meetings are held at members' homes.

The study group meets monthly on the second Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m.  For details, click on meeting information box at the left.

The Gainesville Bonsai Society study group is comprised of individuals dedicated to gaining skills in the art of bonsai, shared learning and discussion of the principles. The group is affilitated with State, Regional and International Bonsai federations.

Members of the study group participate in activities that may include field trips to bonsai nurseries, hands-on workshops, visiting bonsai teachers, individual assistance for members' trees, and presentations on bonsai related topics.
