August Club Meeting – Jarryd Bailey Presenting

At the club’s August meeting, on the evening of Tuesday 8th August, we are most delighted to have Jarryd Bailey as our special presenter for the night, after he has conducted a couple of workshops for members earlier in the day.

Jarryd comes to us from his more usual haunts in Tasmania, where he operates his bonsai business, Montane Bonsai Garden, on the slopes of Mt Wellington. Jarryd has an extensive background and great experience in growing bonsai, and especially in the ethical collecting and growing of native species from his home State. Jarryd has a special interest in the naturalist approach, observing the plants in the wild, and using the unique ecosystems of Tasmania as a guide in his approach to creating bonsai with Tasmanian native species.

This is expected to be a stimulating night, held at the club’s usual meeting rooms at the Coburg Lake Reserve, Coburg, commencing at 7:30 pm, and available simultaneously to our more distant members by Zoom through the link provided.
