Bonsai Exhibition - July 2019

Gilles Kroeger of Reinach-based Bonsai Club Moyogi joined us in the studio this evening to tell us about the club he represents and an upcoming event: The Swiss National Bonsai and Suiseki Exhibition. Club Moyogi (named after a shaping style of Bonsai trees) has been around since the 1980s. It is a member of the VSB (Verein Schweizerischer Bonsai Freunde), a Swiss nationwide Bonsai club representing the supporters and members interested in propogating standards, and interest in Bonsai and Suiseki in Switzerland. Club Moyogi has been nominated to sponsor and organize this year's Swiss National Bonsai and Suiseki Exhibition (the first Bonsai exhibition in Basel) on October 5th & 6th, 2019, in Basel. The club also organizes workshops and classes for people interested in getting started in the hobby, learning about best practices, tree health, aesthetics and artistry, and general information for those hoping to simply learn more. Weekly meetings take place every Saturday at 10 a.m. at the club's headquarters in Reinach.
