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 August 3,          7pm-9pm

The August meeting will feature bonsai artist and 2016 Indiana State Fair Bonsai Judge Jim Doyle.  Jim is an outstanding bonsai artist.  He is the owner of Nature's Way Bonsai in Harrisburg, PA.  He was also one of the guest artists at the 2015 MABA Convention.  Jim will be conducting a demonstration on a collected juniper.  The finished tree will be auctioned off during the club's annual member's only auction, which takes place during the September meeting.

It's time for the Indiana State Fair Bonsai Show!  

Show dates:  Friday, August 5 - Friday, August 12

This year's judge:  Jim Doyle
