A History of Canberra Bonsai Society from Frank Kelly

As well as being the AABC Secretary I am also a longtime member of the Canberra Bonsai Society Inc. The club was established in 1975 by a very small group of enthusiasts and has grown into a club now having the largest membership of all AABC clubs. To celebrate the 45th anniversary of formation the Canberra Bonsai Society is publishing a book entitled ” A History of Canberra Bonsai Society” which will be launched in October 2020.
