May 2018 Meeting

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018 at 9:00 am

GWAPA’s May 26th meeting will be held in Fairfax, VA at Merrifield Garden Center. This month, we’re pleased to invite Bailin Shaw from the Chicago Aquatic Plant Society (CAPS) to lead a Wabi-Kusa demonstration. Dennerle and Florida Aquatic Nurseries are graciously sponsoring this event by donating equipment and plants.  

If you want to participate in the workshop, please head over to the forum and state your intention. Equipment is limited, however, even if you do not secure one of the donated tanks, members and non-members are welcome to observe so that you learn the process to setup a wabi-kusa on your own.

We will also conduct our regular auction after the workshop.
