Smith Garden

Tom Smith, one of our newest members, is the owner of Garden State Koi and Aquatic Center in Warwick, NY. Those of you who have ever gone to Springfest will remember the fantastic water gardens built on site by Garden State Koi, and we are thrilled to be invited to visit his home garden. Tom, his wife Nancy, and their three daughters have lived at this address in Wantage for 12 years. There were no water features when they moved in and only a few hostas. Now, there are four different water features located on the property, surrounded by hundreds of hostas. The main pond is a ‘swimming pond’ that uses special filtration to keep the water pristine. They host many groups and events at their home and if you bring your bathing suit, Tom invites you to swim with his koi. The fish are used to swimming with his guests and enjoy the company! (NO, we are not joking!)

Whether you bring a bathing suit or not, please bring a chair, your lunch, a dessert to share, and a plant or two for the Beverages and paper goods will be provided.
