Welcome to the Bonsai Society of Greater Cincinnati

Since 1964 the Bonsai Society of Greater Cincinnati (BSGC) has been helping people learn, study, and appreciate the art of bonsai. If you are interested in learning about this ancient art form, join us for any of our monthly meetings – they’re open to the public and we would love to see you there!

Bonsai Beginner's Class - October 21, 2023

Have you ever seen a miniature tree in a pot – known as bonsai – and wanted to learn the skills needed to grow your own?  In this hands-on class we’ll teach you the basics of how bonsai are created, and get you started growing, styling, and caring for your very own tree!

This 6-hour instructor-led class includes:
* A Willow-leaf Ficus (Ficus salicaria) pre-bonsai tree
* Bonsai pot and soil
* Course materials
