St. Louis Water Garden Society
2021 Pond-O-Rama was a fantastic weekend!
The tickets sold at our retailers and online exceeded expectations. Sales were the best ever in 21 years. The hosts went above and beyond to make all the visitors to their gardens feel welcome and special. From swimming ponds to small intimate water features, from magnificent flowing waterfalls to quaint seating areas surrounded by lush landscapes this year’s tour had it all.

July 17th General Meeting
On a beautiful Saturday, July 17th at 10 AM, members gathered to visit, chat, and learn about Native Plants at Joan Ziskind’s beautiful home and garden for our first SLWGS meeting in many months. It was great to see everyone!
Topic for the meeting: MY GARDEN’S “FOR THE BIRDS”
Speaker and Hostess: Joan Ziskind
After we introduced ourselves and shared some information about our water gardens and the pond tour, we welcomed new members and guests. We enjoyed some snacks while we settled in to listen and learn.
Joan, as usual, was super organized and exceptionally well prepared. She provided handouts of many plants, growing seasons, and so much more.
Joan was ready to share her knowledge of native plants in her garden, her resources, the process of creating the various areas in her yard with a fabulous slide show and garden walk. Sharing the many varieties of plants and then walking through her garden made for a lovely morning. Joan had a great resource table set up with information, guidance to research and where to purchase native plants.
Thank you, Joan, for hosting the meeting and sharing your knowledge and garden!
