At Water Gardening Weekend May 18-19, North Haven Gardens pros will present classes, workshops and tips, demonstrating how to create at-home water features.
So what’s on the agenda for this free, fourth-annual event?
Free classes will provide hands-on demonstrations about making fountains from various pre-made containers that can even include fish, says Rusty E. Allen, Education and Outreach Coordinator for North Haven Gardens.
To that end, special guests including the Dallas Koi Kichi Group will host an on-site koi and goldfish auction, and buyers can take home purchases the same day. The Koi Kichi Group will offer demos about koi basics, along with tank and pond tips.
Additionally, The North Texas Water Gardening Society will join Allen in showcasing an assortment of plants that grow in and around water, and present a talk about the top 20 perennials best for shade.
Another focus of Water Gardening Weekend: The North Texas Water Gardening Society’s annual pond tour, on which North Haven Gardens’ ponds and gardens are to be featured. Pond tour guides will be available for purchase during the event.
North Haven Gardens offers a year-round calendar of unique classes, demos, and hands-on workshops presented by local artisans and centered around gardening, art and nature.
The make-and-take workshops include varied media such as pottery, watercolor and acrylic painting, with many featuring the addition of wine and snacks while one creates.
