The first TBS meeting is upon. On SATURDAY (please note the change from our traditional day of the week), January 16th at 1:30 PM we will conduct our yearly Board Elections and welcome Michael Hagedorn, a famous bonsai artist, lecturer, and author of two very popular books: "Post-Dated: The Schooling of an Irreverent Bonsai Monk", published in 2008 and Gold Medal winner 2009 PubWest Book Design Awards, and "Bonsai Heresy", published in 2020 with illustrations by another well known bonsai artist, Sergio Cuan. Michael is going to offer a presentation on the latter, a book that focuses on exposing 56 bonsai myths using science and tradition.  


On September 26 and 27 TBS hosted two virtual events: the New Members Beginner Workshop (led by Michael Markoff) and a bonsai talk with David De Groot, the Curator Emeritus of the Pacific Bonsai Museum in Federal Way, Washington, United States. Both were very successful and the recordings of TBS Virtual Events can be found at
