Those interested in finding more about bonsai and the society are welcome to come along as a visitor to a couple of our meetings.
We meet every month of the year (except for December) at 7.30pm on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Harry’s Hut, Brown’s Lagoon, South Albury. Brown’s Lagoon (entry off Olive St.) is a small reserve managed by Albury City. The main meeting starts at 7.30pm.
The Albury Wodonga Bonsai Society has been in existence for more than 30 years. Members range from beginners to bonsai enthusiasts with more than 30 years experience. In 2009 it became a sub-group of the Friends of the Albury Botanic Gardens Inc. The society holds regular monthly meetings.
Each meeting covers a different aspect of growing bonsai such as suitable species (including Australian native plants), styles, re-potting and maintaining healthy plants, or other bonsai related topics. The information is conveyed via a presentation and/or discussion, or a hands-on workshop.
Visitors and members are welcome to bring along their own trees to discuss and seek advice on from other more experienced growers. Some of our members have more than 30 years experience in growing bonsais.
Activities other than the regular meetings including field ‘digs’, bonsai exhibitions and visits to other bonsai club’s exhibitions and events. The society also publishes a monthly newsletter which includes information from the previous meeting and seasonal updates.
Membership fees (2016) are $25 per person or $35 a couple.
