The Topeka Area Water Garden Society sponsors the tour to promote interest in water gardening and as a fundraiser. Proceeds from the tour are used for community water garden projects and educational programs in the Topeka area. Past projects include water features at the Ronald McDonald House, Anna’s Pond at Ward-Meade Botanical Garden, Midland Hospice House, Colmery-O’Neil V.A. Medical Center, The Kay McFarland Japanese Garden and Hope and Healing Academy.  The pond at Colmery-O’Neil V.A.
