Bonsai links and other info
Central Virginia Bonsai Society Newsletter: The newsletter is a mix of news of bonsai events, seasonal tips, bonsai technique articles, bonsai philosophy, and a blow by blow description of the activities and growth of Adams' Bonsai and its proprietor, Julian R. Adams. The newsletter has been published 7 to 9 times per year since 1985 according to the local bonsai activity schedule. It is written by Julian R. Adams, usually in one evenening and emailed on the next day. The result is timely information that pertains to bonsai as practiced by a real person who grows mostly outdoor bonsai in the Virginia foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains (zone 7, maybe 6.5). One could suggest that this is a self centered, one man show. To some degree this is true. It is, I hope, the result, not of self importance, but is the nature of the benevolent dictatorship form of government that the CVBS membership seems to prefer for our organization. Comments and membership growth indicate that the system and the newsletter are working reasonably well. All words, no ads or pictures. All revenue supports CVBS bonsai activities. We have many subscribers in many states. Subscriptions (membership) is currently free. The newsletter is available by contacting Julian R. Adams.
