Whether you have a green thumb or not the Inez Grant Parker Memorial Rose Garden could use your help. They are currently accepting volunteers, novice or experienced, to join the Rose Garden Corps.

Volunteers work in the garden trimming off dead blooms, weeding, raking, fertilizing, pruning and planting new varieties.

Volunteer days are Tuesday and/or Thursday mornings, preferably weekly, for 2-3 hours. A monthly meeting in the Rose Garden on the third Tuesday of each month at 9:15 am is used to share information and direct needed work.

Volunteers learn about roses and also act as goodwill ambassadors to the many tourists who frequent our beautiful garden.

Rose Garden Corps volunteers receive excellent rose care training from experienced volunteers.

This is a great chance to learn more about roses and contribute to a rose garden ranked one of the best in the world.  Interested in volunteering? 

First Meeting of Season:  Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at 9:15 am.
