The St. Joseph Area Water Garden Society was founded to unite all persons interested in creating a water garden for their own personal pleasure; to support each other by sharing information and water gardening experiences; to promote fellowship and camaraderie among everyone belonging to the Society; to promote community projects.

The St. Joseph Area Water Garden Society is open to anyone interested in the objectives of the Society. The Annual membership fee is $15 per couple/family and/or $10 for single person per calendar year running from January through December.


Meetings are held monthly on the second Thursday of each month. For the months of May through September, the meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. at the homes of our members. For the months of October through April, the meetings are held at 6:45 p.m. at Rolling Hills Library.  Programs featuring speakers and topics relevant to all types of gardening are scheduled for the October through April meetings.
