GREATER PHOENIX POND SOCIETY
September 9, 2017
The September 2017 GPPS meeting was held on Saturday at the home of Chuck and Joy Basso in Queen Creek.
The meeting was called to order at 9:10 am by Secretary Sue Beard.
New members: Shelly and Carl Lambert.
Introduced meeting host: Chuck and Joy.
Pond Club business or updates:
Host pond information: The pond is about 1500 gallons. It has a rubber liner but the outside perimeter is a concrete shelf that the large rocks sit on. This is so the water line does not show liner. The bottom drain is also an air line. The equipment for the pond is under ground in a shed that looks like an old fashioned house. The floor is a trap door that opens for pond work and closed to become a kids playhouse.
Guest Speaker: No speaker.
The club talked about our two field trips done during the break. A group went to a painting class and painted dragon fly pictures. Another group went to Mesa Community College and attended a presentation from Dr. Brooks on Aquaponics. We also went to his Land Lab and saw different versions of fish and planting set-ups.
