The Future of Bonsai

For quite some time now we have been wondering how we could possibly expand to include more bonsai lovers from around the world into our community. Although we have always offered classes at the shop, we are limited in how many people can truly join in. In order to combat the location limitations, we’ve been making YouTube videos periodically but we want to do even more for all of you and especially for those who live in areas without much exposure to bonsai. In a perfect world, we’d have the ability to speak with each and every one of you who has questions or comments.

We think we’ve found a way to make this more possible with Patreon. If you have even just $1 to spare, we will take it and build something beautiful for all of us. For now our short-term goals revolve around our continued output of videos and blog posts but in the future we would love to offer online courses dealing with different aspects of bonsai as well as interactive live Q&A sessions and whatever else that we, as a community, can come up with.

This is just the beginning and we need your help: if you can contribute to our Patreon then you will be unlocking the behind the scenes area of what we at Schley’s Bonsai and Supplies do. You’ll get exclusive blog posts and videos. If there are enough of us there, we will have weekly discussion posts where all of our patrons can join together to talk about whatever takes their fancy. In the further off future, we will be holding contests and video demos that everyone can get involved in.

Whether you are a life-long bonsai fan or just starting to get into the hobby, consider sharing this blog post so that we can start our work on growing this community into something even greater and more inclusive. And if you don’t have the ability to contribute at this time, sharing the page is just as valuable. Thank you!

  1. I will gladly become a patron, but I will not give you the password to my email/Facebook account. Let me know if there is a way to sign up with paypal

    • It should mention adding your PayPal when you hit on the option to become a Patron…let me know if it doesn’t, it worked when I checked it out from my computer.
