Who is MBS?
The Milwaukee Bonsai Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals in their efforts to increase their knowledge and skills in the art of bonsai. We are unpaid volunteers who are dedicated to spreading the word about this wonderful, satisfying and challenging hobby. Our executive committe meets the second Tuesday of each month. Elected officers of the committee are the president, first vice-president, second vice president, secretary, treasurer, and three directors at large.
Do you have to be advanced student to take a Master's Workshop?
Absolutely not. The term "Master" refers to the teacher and not the students. Historically, the beginner students have the most to gain and learn from participation in workshops with our visiting masters.
Do you have to know a lot about bonsai to help with staffing at club shows?
You already know a great deal more then you imagine about bonsai. A basic understanding of the art is all that is required to help staff shows, plus when you help, you will discover it is a learning experience for yourself as well.
Consider joining your best choice for bonsai fun, education, and community service, Join MBS, and let the fun begin.
