September 2018 Newsletter

Maybe you thought your Conejo Valley Bonsai Society’s fall calendar was full but now we are launching an experimental new series of programs. Under the guidance of CVBS Vice President Ann Lofquist, we are planning bonsai garden tour “open houses” starting in September and running through November.

Details of this program are still being worked out, but already a number of you have responded positively to the idea of opening up your home bonsai garden to other CVBS members. For one thing, this will allow members to satisfy their curiosity about how fellow members keep and display their trees. In addition, it is hoped that the visits will encourage an exchange of ideas about how to keep and maintain bonsai collections in our urban, Southern California environment.

If you wish to participate as either a visitor or to show your own collection (or both), please contact Ann Lofquist. This is not intended to be a backyard showpiece contest, but rather a learning exercise for us all! So no matter how large or small, novice or advanced your collection and display are, all are encouraged to participate.
