Join us at the Garden Pool for our first tour this Spring and to help us raise money for the ambitious Garden Pool in Haiti project.
We will begin the evening with a guided Garden Pool tour and experience.
We will have a Silent Auction!
Wine and Cheese!
Music and, most of all, Community!
100% of the proceeds from the evening will go directly towards the Garden Pool in Haiti project.
The Garden Pool in Haiti will serve a medical clinic ran by Naturopath's Without Borders to grow food for the patients as well as medicinal herbs. Once in Haiti, we will certify local builders in Haiti to help others create Garden Pools and help spur a sustainable economy. We will incorporate local materials in this design, solar power, as well as provide much needed water purification for the medical clinic.
We are asking for a suggest a $5 donation for the first public GP tour this Spring. Feel free to stop by just for the GP Tour, Silent Auction, or just to say hi!
We would like folks to RSVP to let us know what to expect, but we encourage everyone to please stop by for this event.
All donations are tax deductible as this is going to a federally recognized 501(c)3. If you or your business would like to donate items for the silent auction, please contact Garden Pool at [masked] or danielle [at] gardenpool.org
Please help us spread the word. We hope to see GP regulars as well as new faces to help make this important project a reality!
I'm in class (in Tempe) until 6 but I want to stop by when it is over. I hope I don't miss too much. I have lots of questions on how to grow anything here and I would love to put as many of your wonderful ideas into practice in my back or front yard here in Mesa!
Hi Dennis! Turns out we're neighbors. I am extremely intrigued by your Garden Pool system... and I just found out about it last weekend by simply Googling "Repurpose inground pool" -- and I came across your video and loved what I saw. My wife has gone from "no way" to fascinated. I will be setting up a Facebook invite to some of my friends who I think will like this too. I will RSVP with the appropriate about of +1's. Thanks for putting this together and sharing your experience.
Turns out that I can't make it due to other plans. But I have told 30 of my eco-friendly friends, so you may see some of them. I am only a few blocks away and I'm currently working from home. If you have another time that would be good for me to come by and help you with your garden and you can show me a thing or two, let me know. Thanks.
I invited my Permaculture Design Course study group and our alumni mentor. Hopefully they will attend. There is a pool (though not an abandoned one) at Hope House Farms, our design project. So, Garden Pool is one option for us to pitch to the clients.....
Will the silent auction have any fish available?I live in Snowflake but I could come down to Mesa If I could obtain 50 blue tilapia fingerlings. I am hoping to avoid the high price of shipping for online fish.I would love to tour your Garden pool.

The GP combines:
solar power – harnessing and storing the sun’s energy
water conservation – harvesting water and recycling waste & rain water
poultry farming – raising chickens
aquaculture – raising tilapia fish in ponds
hydroponic gardening – growing fruits, veggies, & herbs without soil
organic horticulture – using natural methods to control garden pests
aquaponics – the symbiotic cultivation of produce and fish in a recirculating hydroponic environment
biofiltration – natural water filtration method using biochemistry and duckweed
dwarf fruit & nut trees- small trees that produce an array of food
The Garden Pool has been featured by the TODAY Show, Whole Foods, Nat Geo, The Learning Channel, Discovery's Treehugger, NY Times, and media from around the world. It is a one of a kind backyard food-producing ecosystem that was voted the Phoenix New Times Best Backyard Farm in 2012. Come see what the buzz is about!
