The Akron Canton Bonsai Society was created to understand, enjoy, learn and share ideas about the art of Bonsai. In short: it's all about our trees. We meet on the first Thursday of every month--except December-- at 7:00pm at the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center, 2131 Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 44221.

Japanese Black Pine: Step One – Potting
This is the Year of the Japanese Black Pine.
The Japanese Black Pine is truly one of the CLASSIC bonsai species. So we hope that you will join us in the fun of working together on this species (Pinus thunbergii).
This Thursday we will receive the pines we’ve ordered from Ken. Some ordered the small, and some ordered the medium size pines. At this meeting we will begin the process by discussing soils and potting techniques. Gib will bring his photography equipment so that everyone can take a “before” picture of their tree.
