This pond was created in June 2022 as a conservation project inspired by my favorite school teachers in life. It is dedicated in loving memory of Mr. Donald Deseth. We miss you. Thank you for the difference you made.

Interested in using a German Tall Clay Pot as our anchors for the ProEco commercial fountain nozzles. We can use galvanized or copper pipe to make the right-sized vertical anchors for each nozzle to adhere to using velcro cable ties only. The clay pots will be filled with ??? pea gravel, play sand, 100% clay cat litter? The cat litter idea would definitely create a firm bond over time around each copper or galvanized post. Adds more clay to the pond (++) for biological media. Also the cheapest, but we'll need to prevent it from leaking out the holes at the bottom initially. Maybe just landscape fabric? These must be authentic, real clay pots. We're tossing them permanently into water.
