Hi there:

I moved to Calgary on May. Adquired a couple of Junipers from Bluegrass and Golden Acre. And one Mugo from a small local nursery. Will like to join you guys in a meeting about this fascinating hobby. send me a PM.

I know of some yamadori material that I learned today is going to be replaced with new young shrubs in the late spring at a shopping center. If anyone is interested, I have permission to remove them come spring. They are not very large plants but have 2-3 inch trunks, stand about 12-16 inches high and would fit into a 16×16×6 crate very nicely. Others may need a slightly larger box as they are very slanted. Interested? Send me a message.

I'm returning to Bonsai as a casual hobby... that being said, I'd enjoy getting some advice and feedback, especially given Calgary's climate. Has the group been started yet?

Started a Facebook group for localized discussions. We had our first meet-up on the weekend with a few folks. Let's hope we can keep this momentum going. For anyone who didn't send me an email, here is the facebook group URL: https://www.facebook.com/calgarybonsai

There is going to be a convention in Victoria in October 2014. It will be snowing in Calgary by then so it would be a good break for you. Be nice to meet you there.

Two of us got together yesterday for our second "meeting" and built some grow boxes for potential collection this spring. Photo attached. Basically I own absolutely no tools to do this kind of thing, so thankfully Mike is awesome and pretty much built them all (I held the pieces together though!). Thanks again to Mike for having basic woodworking know-how and sharing his skills with me!

They turned out great. Now I just need to find some stuff to put in them! Kind of putting the cart before the horse isn't it?
