BSOP November Meeting-


For our program on November 24th, we are fortunate to feature world renowned Ryan Neil styling a Ponderosa Pine. For those who don’t know Ryan, he spent six years apprenticing for Mr. Masahiko Kimura in Japan. After completing his apprenticeship, he settled in Oregon with his wife Chelsea. They began the lifelong pursuit of building Mirai, a bonsai wonderland located outside St. Helens where Ryan teaches and creates some of the worlds most exquisite bonsai. Ryan and Chelsea produced The Artisan Cup which we all had the privilege of enjoying in September. To see some of his amazing work, visit his website at or view one of his many videos on You Tube.
