In case you haven’t already, save the date in your agenda. We’d be thrilled to meet other enthusiasts, and spend quality time together.
LIJDIA CARPENTIER EXHIBITION | HONORARY MEMBER | ‘MY LIFELONG PASSION’ EXHIBITION
On March 25/26, longtime club member Lijdia Carpentier organised her bonsai exhibition, titled ‘my lifelong passion’. She showed more than 30 of her best trees, all groomed to perfection over the course of many years. It is rare you will find such a good collection of trees in one exhibition, it is truly a unique experience when these belong to the same person. Not surprisingly that Lijdia was awarded during her show with the honorary membership of Eda Uchi Kai.

FEBRUARY | It’s always a pleasure to welcome Jarek Lenarczyk. During a 2 hour demo he created a beautiful Japanese larch forest planting from scratch. Jarek explained every step of the process, providing tips & tricks and answering questions from the engaged group of members.
