Next Meeting: Indoor Growing with Lights & Tents – Ryan Huston

This month’s meeting will delve into the topic of indoor growing, specifically using lights and tents. Our guest speaker is Ryan Huston. A bit about Ryan:
“Ryan started exploring the art of bonsai at the young age of 8 when he first encountered the bonsai collection at the Franklin Park Conservatory in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. From that day on, Ryan always had at least a handful of pre-bonsai he was learning to keep alive. Much later when pursuing his undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, Ryan was inspired to further explore the art of bonsai and began volunteering at the Elandan Gardens under the famous bonsai artist Dan Robinson. One of Ryan’s favorite bonsai-related activities is camping in exotic places around the US and collecting naturally stunted trees wherever it is legal. Exploring such natural spaces also has the compounded benefit of providing inspiration, helping Ryan understand forests and species-specific nuances around the country in their native environments.
Ryan records some lessons from his travels as well as his time as a bonsai apprentice at his bonsai blog “”. Ryan has since continued his educational pursuits in bonsai by starting YouTube channels for the Puget Sound Bonsai Association and Columbus Bonsai Society to share artist demonstrations, co-founding the Bonsai Time Podcast, and giving lectures and demonstrations for public events.”
