Building Community Through The Art Of Bonsai



Club Meetings
Sei Boku Bonsai Kai is proud of the enthusiasm and joy that it provides for our members and the community, conveniently located on the peninsula, south of San Francisco. We welcome anyone with interest in bonsai to attend our monthly meetings and join our club.

Our monthly club meetings excluding December are held on the  4th Wednesday of each month, from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  We are currently holding face-face meetings but this may change by month. Vaccination required and face masks to help protect the membership

When we can meet in person, our location is at the San Mateo Garden Center, 605 Parkside Way, San Mateo, CA right off the Alameda de las Pulgas, in Beresford Park.

3rd Saturday Virtual Open Workshop 2-4 PM
It’s 2021 and while all wait to be fully vaccinated, that doesn’t mean we can’t get together virtually via Zoom! In early 2022 our workshops may change to face-to-face; check here for updates. This still gives us a space to gather, ask questions, get advice, and just share life. The forum is open and flexible. Some of us stay on for the whole two hours, some folks just dropped in for a little while. It’s a great opportunity to work on your trees and catch up with your Sei Boku friends!

March – SBBK Birthday Meeting

This Month’s Meeting

March 23 at 7:00PM—8:30: (Garden Center) Jonas Dupuich

To help celebrate our 39th anniversary as a club, we’ve invited local bonsai professional, Jonas Dupuich as our guest speaker. He will lead the in-person meeting on formal display and review with us the dos and don’ts. We encourage members interested or thinking about showing their trees to bring them, as well as stands and accent plants.

Jonas is the owner of Bonsai Tonight located in Alameda, has a blog and is the creator of a bonsai podcast “Bonsai Wire” at talk@bonsaiwirepodcast.com. I’m sure many of you know that Jonas is also organizing the first Pacific Bonsai Expo to take place in Oakland this November of 2022. He will gladly answer all your questions about this exciting new bonsai expo.

Additionally, we need your help. We now need to pull tables and chairs from storage and then put them away at the end of every meeting. We welcome all that can assist us.
