Our local organization of bonsai, the Bonsai Society of Portland, asked me to put on a summer tour for its members. I was delighted! With several tour options to consider, we ended up with a long afternoon excursion to nurseries and studies of Ryan Neil, Jan Rentenaar, and Randy Caballero. We had a whooping 19 BSOP members register, and the mass of us took off in a boxcars last weekend to be inspired by a beautiful bonsai, bonsai containers handmade, and conifers collected. Several people walked away that day with new trees and shrubs, too.

While we are working on the website for the people Portland Bonsai will share the activities of the people here on the blog Crataegus Bonsai – just so you can get an idea of ​​the kind of experience you might have if they see and visit us. We are certainly open for tours and excursions before the website is …

Enjoy the pictures of our first tour Portland Bonsai Village!
