Bring your checkbook!
DONATIONS ARE ACCEPTED UNTIL 6:30PM on July 19.
**Please email Gail Abernathy with item description, estimated value, and photo.
All Pond & Garden-related items welcome – including new decor, tools, accessories. Gift certificates for retail, consulting, labor, or equipment rental would be ideal. Live plants – especially unique or substantial ones – are encouraged; live animals/fish are not. :) Hand-made items are very popular with auction bidders. In the past, photographs, painting, and other art have encouraged spirited bidding. Unusual plants, containers, and equipment for pond operation are always of interest to attendees.
Please ask neighbors, retailers, contractors for donations, too. SLWGS will promote any commercial donors on our website, social media, and newsletter, as well as at the July 2022 Auction itself.
DATE/ TIME: July 19, 2022, 7 p.m.

Auctioneer Josh Higgins did not fool around when it came time to accepting and awarding bids at the annual St Louis Water Garden Society auction in July. Items for bid included a wide variety of plants, garden/yard/pond decor, pond equipment, and handmade items.
The St. Louis Water Garden Society raised $ 869.00 from auction sales, which will be put toward the care & keeping of the Jewel Box Lily Ponds.
The St. Louis Water Garden Society (SLWGS) was established in 1990 for local water gardeners and fish enthusiasts to share information about their beloved hobby. As a result, we attract members at all stages of water gardening expertise. Educational events remain central to the organization’s purpose. For example, we schedule guest speakers for almost every monthly meeting.
Certainly, we think water gardening is a wonderful hobby. It can bring beauty, satisfaction and enjoyment into your life. First, the ecosystem of plants, fish and water are a fascinating challenge. Second, whether you have a water garden or just enjoy visiting them, you will find friends who share your interests within the SLWGS. Join us!
