On Sunday, March 7th at 1:30 PM we host a long time friend of TBS, Bill Valavanis. It's not an exaggeration to say that Bill is a true giant in the world of bonsai, but three facts summarize Bill's contributions very well:

1) Bill has been doing bonsai professionally at the highest level for over 50 years

2) He is the only American ever to be granted the honor of judging some of the top bonsai shows in Japan

3) He is the only living member of the American Bonsai Hall of Fame.

Don't miss it! The invitation with the Zoom link is being distributed by email as we write this. We hope to see you numerous!


On Sunday February 21st we hosted virtually a long time friend of TBS, Matt Ouwinga. Matt is the premier dealer of antique Japanese and Chinese bonsai container in the US; he is also among the largest provider of seedlings of favorite bonsai species in the country.
