About the club: The Bonsai Society of Texas was founded in Dallas in 1965 and was
the first of it's kind in the state. Soon after additional clubs started in other Texas cities
and we became known as the Bonsai Society of Dallas. We would like to welcome all who
have an interest in the art of bonsai. We have regular monthly meeting plus hands on
workshops throughout the year. Our monthly meetings occur the first Saturday of the
month, 9:00 to noon at North Haven Gardens 7700 Northaven road Dallas,Tx. 75230

Membership includes a monthly program, monthly newsletter, and other events
available exclusively to members.
About the convention: The convention is co-sponsored by the Lone Star Bonsai
Federation , an association of bonsai clubs in Texas. This event rotates to each city
annually so it happens only once every five years in Dallas. Invited are three well
known bonsai artists who have each received extensive training in Japan. The three
artists are Kathy Shaner, Michael Hagedorn,& Ryan Neil. They will be conducting a
variety of workshops,demonstrations & lectures.
The convention will also feature a bonsai exhibit & raffles & many bonsai vendors
