The members of the St. Louis Water Gardening Society (SLWGS) invite you to join our active organization. The Society was established in July 1990 as a non-profit organization to provide a fun and relaxed way for local water gardeners and koi-keepers to regularly exchange information about our shared hobby. Water gardening is a relaxing but challenging hobby involving an ecosystem with plants, fish and water. Whether you have a large or small water garden, this hobby can bring beauty, satisfaction and enjoyment into your life.

Benefits of being a SLWGS member:

  • Monthly meetings, usually held on a Tuesday at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Programs cover a range of topics for all levels of experience.
  • Two tickets to Pond-O-Rama, our annual public pond tour, for all members who have paid their dues before April 1.
  • Hands-on experience planting and maintaining the lily ponds at the Jewel Box, our civic project.
  • Water Word newsletter.
  • This website, listing the latest newsletter, meeting schedule, directions, links, photos and event information.
  • Yahoo Email Group, to receive late-breaking society information, reminders of meetings, occasional offers of free plants and/or fish, and a forum to ask questions and share knowledge with other email group members.
  • Special Events, such as field trips and member water garden tours.
  • Eligibility to take Koi Health Advisor classes from AKCA (Associated Koi Clubs of America).
