Mission Statement— It is our wish to improve our lives and the lives of others by introducing and promoting the art and culture of bonsai.
We believe practicing bonsai can help people develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of the natural world and of our fellow human beings. Bonsai is an art that requires patience, diligence, creativity and awareness, among other things. Bonsai can be beautiful and inspiring, so a bonsai collection and a knowledge of bonsai can enrich our lives. At New England Bonsai Gardens we would like to practice these qualities and share them with our customers. By practicing bonsai we can see how our behavior can affect a tree. If you let the soil get too dry the bonsai dries out and dies. There is a very direct consequence of our actions. If we take good care of the bonsai it will thrive, look beautiful and live longer. So bonsai is a very honest approach to life. There's nowhere to run.
In 1987 we started New England Bonsai Gardens by renting one greenhouse in South Natick, Mass, outside of Boston. Now, in our current eight acre home in Bellingham, Massachusettes, a beautiful location with eight greenhouses we are recognized as one of the nations largest, most beautiful and comprehensive bonsai nurseries. Our ties with Japan are strong. We host teachers and guests every year. We import from Japan and other Asian countries. Our roots also extend to the West Coast where we have cultivated relationships with some of the best and most experienced bonsai growers in the country.
For over 23 years we have offered the very finest in bonsai and bonsai education. We would love to have you as part of our ever expanding bonsai community, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned practitioner you are very welcome.
We cordially invite you to visit us.
