Ken Huth

Ken has been involved with Bonsai for over 25 years.  Early experiences with John Naka and Keith Scot among others and trips to Omiya and Kyoto Japan led to an intense desire to learn more!  Back when there were limited learning resources available, he became involved with the Cleveland Bonsai Club and later helped start the Akron Canton Bonsai Society to continue to experience more of what was going on in the Bonsai World.
