Welcome to the Sacramento Bonsai Club

We are proud to be a non-profit organization, promoting and introducing the art of Bonsai and Suiseki to the Sacramento community since 1946.

Club Photo

We are proud to say that we are the oldest bonsai club in the state of California and our club is only getting bigger in size.

The Sacramento Bonsai Club, established in 1946, is the oldest club in the United States and is an active club with active members. The club has special guest instructors and “hands-on” workshops led by instructors or members at our monthly “second Monday evening” meetings. There are also scheduled Saturday transplanting workshops held at Maruyama Nursery in Sacramento.

The art of suiseki (viewing stones) is also taught by knowledgeable members who have guided us on past collecting trips and dai-making workshops.

Please join us in our celebration of the art of Bonsai and Suiseki!
