MBC Meeting – Adam Toth

April 2, 2024 @ 7:00 pm 9:30 pm PDT

Adam Toth will discuss the development of deciduous bonsai. As we are all seeing buds popping and internodes lengthening on our maples, elms, and fruiting and flowering trees this spring, it is a good idea to check in and make sure we are doing the right work at the appropriate time.

Adam will bring some of his trees to talk about and we are suggesting members bring in a deciduous tree to discuss as well. There is no promise Adam will have time to get to each tree or provide much detail, but it will be instructive to see examples of work—good and not so good—on members’ trees.

Adam fell in love with bonsai over 10 years ago and now, after apprenticing for over 3 years with Taiga Urushibata at the Taisho-en bonsai garden in Shizuoka, Japan he has returned to the U.S. and established himself as a well-respected young professional. He has been a frequent guest artist at bonsai meetings and conventions in the Bay Area and beyond, and has been leading workshop groups as well. He particularly likes working on shohin and mame bonsai, but received a well rounded education in Japan and is adept at working on all bonsai species.

We are asking members to bring items for a Member Raffle during our meeting. Please check your trees, pots, tools, books and other bonsai related items and bring something you think others would enjoy for this fundraising event.
