Classified as Zone 3, Southern Manitoba's climate can be a challenge when growing and collecting bonsai. There are many excellent sources for learning about bonsai, but if you live on the Canadian prairies, our club can help you learn how to deal with our climate so you too can grow bonsai successfully, indoors and out.
Guests are welcome to our monthly meetings. Join us on the second Thursday of the month, 7-9 PM
Every spring and autumn we go on a field trip to collect native trees. Members, register here for the next club-guided dig.
Learn about bonsai in our 20-hour Introduction to Bonsai Course for beginners.
Weekend-long events featuring visiting Bonsai artists, include several workshops, a demonstration, dinners and a raffle.
The highlight of the year where our members exhibit over 100 trees and answer questions from the public.
We assemble a number of group orders during the year for volume discounts and savings on shipping and handling.
Articles on growing bonsai in Southern Manitoba, history of bonsai, bonsai tools, bonsai pots, bonsai potting mix, and tips on photographing bonsai.
The club’s library is a growing source of information. Books, videos and magazines are available to Society members for nominal fees.
Regular club meetings are another aspect of learning. Regular meetings include demonstrations, panel discussions, guest speakers, and member's trees presented for interest, for advice, or just for fun.
Organized by Club volunteers, group purchases of books, tools, containers, potting media, wire and trees suitable for bonsai, both indoor and outdoor, help members save money and get good quality.
The Bonsai Society of Winnipeg was organized in the early 1980s by a group of enthusiasts who wanted to get together to share their experiences, to learn from each other, to pool their resources, and to enjoy the companionship of others with a common interest... we learn by sharing our experience, and pooling our resources.
The Bonsai Society of Winnipeg is a member of BCI (Bonsai Clubs International) and maintains ties with other bonsai clubs in Canada, the USA and around the world. Visit us on Facebook for more photos of our activities and events.
