1st Annual Pond & Garden Tour, Waterloo Region

bob pondThis is what happens when a small group of local pond owners form a committee.

There are myriad Garden Tours, so why not a Pond Tour?              There’s no better way to showcase some of the awesome urban retreats–from small ponds and bogs and pondless waterfalls with streams, to impressive koi keeping.  You won’t believe what is hidden in these back yards.  You’d never guess it from the street!

GRAND valley logoFirst off, we needed a Major Sponsor.

Introducing our Presenting Sponsor, (drumroll please) Grand Valley Garden Village, on old King in Kitchener.

I’ve been haunting the Garden Village for years and couldn’t be more pleased that they’ve come on board, in a big way.  If you’ve met Dave the Pond Guy there, you know the kind of enthusiasm I mean.

We’re really excited about this brand new event on Saturday September 7th, 2013,  9 am to 3 pm. Rain or Shine, as they say.

Tickets are on sale now!

Tickets are $20 a person (which supports a regional non-profit, more on that below).  The packages can be purchased at Grand Valley Garden Village, Kuntz Electroplating (front entrance) on Manitou in Kitchener, or A Dutch Mill Flower Shop, 41 Princess St in Waterloo.

But there’s more!

Not only will there be seven fantastic water features & gardens on the tour to inspire you, your ticket includes a locavore BBQ presented by TwinCity Remax and hosted by The Farmer’s Daughter, a special voucher, plus draws and prizes at Grand Valley Garden Village that same afternoon from 3 – 5 pm.
