Cape Fear Bonsai Society
The Cape Fear Bonsai Society (CFBS), organized in 2001, is a group of men and women who meet monthly to study and practice the art of Bonsai.
The club has an active program of training through workshops, guest speakers and a sharing of collective Bonsai expertise. Membership is open to both the novice and the more experienced practitioner of Bonsai.
You are invited to come on by, bring a tree to work on and get some dirt under your fingernails!
