July 17th Meeting

In recent years BSK has not held meetings in July or Aug., but the survey at the June meeting indicated support for doing so.  Join us on July 17th ad Aug. 21st, with workshops at the Maruyama Bonsai Nursery the following Saturday mornings.  The topic this month will be summer tree care, including pruning and defoliation.  Please bring your trees to share and, if you like, get some advice.

Upcoming Bonsai Events

August 24-25 in Santa Rosa: Redwood Empire Bonsai Society’s 30th Annual Show.  Santa Rosa Veteran’s Building, 1351 Maple Ave.  Sat. 10AM-5PM and Sun. 10AM-4PM.  Demos both days at 1PM by Kathy Shaner.  shimon@mecn.org  (This is a popular show with many vendors – Ed.)


BONSAI SEKIYU KAI (meaning plant & stone lovers club) is a non-profit educational and social organization devoted to assisting members in developing and improving skills fundamental to the art of bonsai (miniature trees) and suiseki (viewing stones).  The club was formed in June 1976 with its first show in 1977.  As a member of the Golden State Bonsai Federation and part of the Capitol City Bonsai Association, we support Bonsai Collection North in Oakland.  Dues are $__ per year.  We meet at 7:00 PM on the 3rd Wed. of the month at the Sacramento Buddhist Church, 2401 Riverside Blvd., Sacramento, CA.  For more information, see the contact information in this newsletter.
