Welcome to the Bonsai Society of the Carolinas official web site. The BSC was the first bonsai club to be established in the Carolinas and since 1964 has been teaching, promoting and practicing the art of bonsai for almost half a century.
Our Club is made up of folks from throughout the Charlotte and Mecklenburg County area and meets on a monthly basis. If you would like to find out what's planned for our meeting this coming month, just click the link at left. Visitors are always welcome.
Our Club members come from a wide variety of backgrounds but we all share a common love.... the art of bonsai. Members included knowledgeable artists who have been creating and growing bonsai for many years as well as novices who are just beginning to learn the art of bonsai. If you have any questions or comments about our club or this site we can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
