We have a busy schedule planned for the first six months. See below. 

Our meetings usually fall into one of two categories - educational and social. Educational meeting feature a speaker presenting on a topic of interest to water gardeners. At social meetings, we discuss ponding issues, either as one large group or in several smaller ones. In either sort of meeting, you will learn a lot, and get to share ideas with other pond enthusiasts! You don’t have to be a member to attend, so drop on by and say hello!
