Indianapolis Bonsai Club


The Indianapolis Bonsai Club was founded in 1968 to promote interest in and appreciation of Bonsai. Our members are a diverse group of individuals with a wide range of skills and expertise.

Club meetings are the first Wednesday of every month and are held at the Garfield Park Conservatory on the near south side of Indianapolis. Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. Annual dues are $25. For more information, complete and submit the "contact us" form. 

     IBC's next meeting:  Wednesday March 2,         7pm-9pm

During this meeting, we'll be making 9in. x 12in. walnut bonsai stands.  The cost to participate in this program is $10.00.  Although we will sand and assemble the stands at the meeting, you will need to stain and finish them at home.  We will provide you with information on finishing your bonsai stand.

Do you have care questions on a bonsai tree?  Would you like some assistance from a member of the Indianapolis Bonsai Club?  If so, then BONSAI 1 ON 1 is for you!  Beginning March 2nd, IBC members will be able to come in early to get personal assistance with their trees.  Veteran bonsai artists will be available for advice and assistance from 6pm - 7pm before our regularly scheduled meeting.
