Ponds and water gardens are the fastest growing trend in landscaping! When built properly they are sustainable, environmentally responsible and efficient.
Come talk to pond owners and experience the magic for yourself!
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Maricopa County Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Gardening Program, which program was created to support teachers in using gardens as a tool for exciting children about academics, life skills, and nutrition.
Information on Koi ponds and water gardening will be available throughout the tour. In addition, many stops will include other interesting sights and information, such as the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension's demonstration gardens, the National Spa and Pool Institute's state-of-the-art pool equipment and water safety devices, and much more!
