Mother Lode Bonsai Club’s Saturday, October 5 meeting will feature Sam Adina, a highly respected area bonsai expert. The club’s monthly meeting will be held at 9:00 a.m. at the San Andreas Central Library, 1299 Gold Hunter Road (off Mountain Ranch Road) in San Andreas with Adina’s demonstration on juniper styling immediately following.
Adina, who is also the sensei (teacher) for the Modesto Bonsai Club, has been raising and teaching bonsai design for nearly 20 years. He is recognized as one of the best local bonsai instructors and has conducted presentations for the Golden State Bonsai Federation, California Shohin Society and numerous bonsai venues in the Philippines.
According to Adina, bonsai is his way of relaxing after a strenuous day at work. “I find a challenge with every tree because each is totally different. Bonsai art makes me happy and I love to study how each plant will grow and develop in the future. I never tire of it whether it’s for my own collection or for a customer,” he said.

Everyone is invited to attend meetings, demonstrations and workshops regardless of their levels of experience in bonsai. The organization’s members come from Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties, as well as the San Joaquin Valley.
