Regular Meetings

ABS club meetings are fun casual affairs.  Bring a friend that you’d like to introduce to our art.  We welcome visitors and the curious. The standard meeting location is in the lower level class room behind Day Hall at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. (Note: your ABS membership includes admission into the ABG for club events (excluding parking fee)).  Check our calendar events for exceptions. We have door prizes, sell club shirts, and members often bring bonsai items to sell.  We also provide soft drinks and snacks, have door prizes and the occasional special auction.

Road Shows

Our club tends to cover North Georgia in addition to the Atlanta area.  We have several special events on site at various bonsai related locations through the year. See below for more info.
