         The Long Island Bonsai Society

There are no borders in Bonsai. It brings peace to a palace as it does to the most humble 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 its shade.


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




Meeting  6/12 7:00 PM

Robert Mahler Demo

Bob is a Japanese trained artist. He was the curator of the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. He is the owner of Kifu Bonsai and current President of the Pennsylvania Bonsai Society. He is a favorite of LIBS. He has a wealth of knowledge in all areas of bonsai and is also willing to answer your questions.





Meeting 7/10 7:00 PM
