Southern Arizona Koi Association (SAKA) is having their annual Garden Pond Tour will be on May 14 15. The club will be donating $1 from each ticket sold to the Japanese Red Cross for earthquake relief.
Tickets are only $5 each and children 12 and under are free. They are available at many landscape and garden centers in town as listed on the flyer:
Civano Nursery, Green Things, Harlow’s, Magic Gardens Nursery, Mesquite Valley Growers, Ponds Plants more, Rillito Nursery, Sheldon’s Nursery, Tohono Chul Park, Tucson Botanical Gardens, and Mt. View Koi (in Hereford, AZ).
I’ve never been on this koi garden tour, but I intend to check out some of these lovely ponds this weekend.
A few highlights for this year’s pond tour will be several very large ponds of over 20,000 gallons with jumbo koi. There will be a dozen ponds, plus one bonus pond in a variety of styles. SAKA tried to group them on Saturday and Sunday, so there will be a little less driving than in prior years.
More info: www.sakoia.org, 520-390-0879, firstname.lastname@example.org.
And doesn’t it sound peaceful to drop by several cool koi ponds on a hot almost-summer day?
Enjoy the koi!
