The magic of Yuji Yoshimura, the founder of the Bonsai Society of Greater NY and the man who brought bon-
sai to the US went beyond his well known genius as a bonsai artist. Mr. Y, as he was called by his students, did more than introduce the trees to Americans. He made bonsai accessible. While he himself was a Japanese bonsai master, born into bonsai, he believed that bonsai should not be a restricted art, but rather one that should be open to the world. His mission was to educate and it is still the
mission of BSGNY. At the BSGNY, we believe no one is ever too 'green' or
too 'knowledgeable' to be part of our society. For the experienced bonsai
enthusiasts, it's the perfect place to exchange valuable experiences in
bonsai care and growth; for the novice who wants to learn a few things
about the art, our society has members with decades of bonsai experience,
especially in growing trees suitable for the New York Metropolitan region;
these experienced bonsai members are always glad to provide help and
answers to any bonsai related questions. On this site you will find informa-
tion about our current activities and future plans, as well as a memberhip
application. From time to time, we invite bonsai masters from throughout
the world to speak at our meetings; in addition, exciting workshops are
always available for our members, on all levels of topics; afterall, nothing
beats learning through hands-on experience. Please visit our site on a
regular basis to keep abreast of our activities.
