Membership and Workshops

No experience is necessary to belong – just an interest in learning. Why not join us in our tree growing adventure. The AABS is an organization of people of all ages and walks of life interested in learning about and promoting the art of bonsai. Individual experience in growing bonsai ranges from none to many years. The regional nature of our Club is reflected in our membership, which includes people from as far away as Midland, Lansing, and Toledo as well as southeastern Michigan.
