About Toronto Bonsai Society (TBS)
The Toronto Bonsai Society, founded in 1964 and one of the largest outside Japan, is devoted to the learning, practice and teaching of the horticultural techniques and artistic principles of the ancient art of bonsai.
Inspired by Nature
Through our regular meetings, workshops, lectures and exhibitions we promote interest in bonsai and a genuine community around this fascinating art-form.
Join the Club
At our monthly meetings, bonsai techniques are taught to beginners. At least once a year, the Society invites a bonsai master from the United States, Europe or Japan for a series of lectures, demonstrations and workshops that will also be of interest to experienced bonsai growers.
