The Bonsai club was founded in 1981 by Ben Scolari to bring together bonsai enthusiasts from across Utah. The club brings people together to discuss, learn and advance our understanding of an art form intertwined with a living tree. It enables ideas and different views of bonsai to be discussed and implemented by the club members.

In spring and fall club member bring their trees to Red Butte Gardens to share their work. You can join us at the Garden Center at Sugarhouse Park (1610 E 2100 S) on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 7pm for our monthly club meeting. Find us on Facebook @bonsaiclubofutah
