One goal of the GSBF Bonsai Garden at Lake Merritt (BGLM) is to educate people in the art and science of Bonsai. In an effort towards achieving that goal, the BGLM has teamed with the East Bay Bonsai Society (EBBS) to help interested students get started in the study of bonsai.Highly trained EBBS members volunteer as teachers for the Bonsai Beginners’ Classes held at the BGLM Workshop on the fourth Sunday of each month (except February and December). Upon completion of the class you are invited to attend EBBS meetings and events to continue your bonsai education. EBBS meet at the Lakeside Garden Center, 666 Bellevue Ave., Lake Merritt, on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30 PM to socialize and attend lectures about bonsai techniques by bonsai masters. EBBS also holds a series of workshops where members work on their bonsai. If you are interested in participating in a Bonsai Beginners’ Class, please please complete the form below.
