Mohawk Valley Bonsai Club

Monthly meetings are held on the second Saturday from 1-3 p.m. at:

Unitarian Universalist Church of Utica

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501



The Mohawk Valley Bonsai Club was formed in order to bring together people in the greater Utica area who have an interest in bonsai. By associating with each other, sharing knowledge, experiences and having fun while learning about this ancient oriental art form, we all grow together. The group first met in a park in July 2005 and has grown to include newcomers to the hobby as well as those with 20+ years of experience!
