As from October 2000 the meeting is now held at the West Pennant Hills Community Centre, 42 Hill Rd, West Pennant Hills. First Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm for an 8:00pm start. The Bonsai Society of Australia meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30. The Society does not meet during the month of January. see map
Our meetings: as well as providing much information, are friendly and informal. Our lecturers and demonstrators are most qualified and their work is usually seminar quality. We also encourage up and coming demonstrators. Our members bring bonsai for the bench display as part of a competition with voting done by popular choice. This competition is meant to be a form of education as upon viewing a bonsai one either approves or dislikes it. The voters have the guidelines and vote accordingly. Upon request we also provide assessments of the design and offer continued direction.
The club hold a free hands-on workshop for members on the third Tuesday of each month at Normanhurst Public School Hall, Normanhurst Rd, Normanhurst at 7:30pm.
