  • The Planting Field  Members are asked to come help at the planting field at Bob Grealish’s House. We have purchased starter material and planted it in the ground with the goal of having great material in the future and along the way learning how to train bonsai from an early stage. Work days will be announced and your volunteer time will be recorded,  so the more time you put in, the better your selection will be when we use the trees.
  • Bonsai Supplies: Remember to call Bob Dietz from Bonsai in the Burgh @ 724-348-4771  for all of your bonsai supplies, and he can bring them to a meeting for you or you can visit him in South Park.
