PBA member clubs provide the best and quickest way for anyone to learn about bonsai horticulture and design. Members further their knowledge at monthly club meetings, via lectures, workshops and mentoring programs. Each member club develops its own educational program which is advertised in the PBA newsletter for other club members’ benefit. These programs include lectures on bonsai horticulture, bonsai styling demonstrations and discussions, and workshops. These programs may be presented by club members or bonsai professionals brought in expressly for the club’s membership. Workshops cover a range of topics from beginner to advanced levels. They also allow individuals to work on their own trees or on trees provided for the workshop. All PBA member clubs encourage club members to bring in their trees to meetings for discussion, suggestions and help.
