Welcome to the new website of the Greater New Orleans Bonsai Society. The website is currently under construction with the layout being worked on and new items as well as old information for the previous website being added.

One thing that I would like to add to the site is a member gallery of trees. If you are a member and have photographs of trees you would like displayed on the site, please email jpegs to me.

I have already updated the calendar of meetings and events and if you scroll to the bottom of this page, you will always see the next three upcoming events. During construction, I will keep these updated. Please be patient with the rest of the site.

Thank You
Kathy Barbazon
Greater New Orleans Bonsai Society


Johnny Martinez Award Winner

Dawn Koetting maple small

Congratulations to Dawn Koetting for becoming our Johnny Martinez Award Winner. Dawn’s beautiful Japanese maple was voted favorite tree by a very large GNOBS Auction audience.


Thank You to everyone that made our Auction a huge success!

I would like to thank all the members and their spouses who set up and broke down, manned tables, ran trees, cleaned, took care of food and of course our fabulous auctioneer. I would also like to thank everyone who donated such quality material and at such quantities and of course everyone that came and opened their wallets to purchase trees and contribute to the auction. The auction only works because we have so many members willing to donate their time and bonsai to the auction.
