The Long Island Bonsai Society

There are no borders in Bonsai. It brings peace to a palace as it does to the most humbles of homes, to the young as to the old, to the rich as to the poor.


It invites us to live within the world it is onto itself, and we are drawn, as no words can express, to live within it's shade.


The Long Island Bonsai Society invites all to enjoy this living art that can last for generations.

Please see the heading LIBS Soil Supplies where you will be able to purchase all our soil products. 

We have a limited supply of soil on hand (out of Akadama and Aoki) and don't know when a new shipment can be obtained due to ongoing restrictions of supplies and shipping from Japan. 

Please take advantage of this opportunity while supplies last.
