Where can you see roses bloom in the desert? The Rose Garden at Mesa Community College proudly showcases more than 9,000 rose bushes of over 300 varieties. To prepare for the next blooming cycle in mid-March, the Rose Garden is looking for volunteers eager to contribute their gardening skills to the largest rose garden in the southwestern United States.
Volunteers are needed to prune and deadhead thousands of rose bushes and help cultivate and clean up the areas around the garden. In addition to learning a new skill, volunteers will enjoy the camaraderie of working with others in a peaceful setting. Pruners are encouraged to bring their own gloves, pruning shears and gardening tools. Coffee and donuts are provided.
Experts are eager to demonstrate how to prune roses and keep your own garden looking beautiful. It’s a great opportunity to talk to the area’s foremost experts in rose gardening.
When: January 4, 11, 18, 25 and February 1, 8, 15 and 22, 2014 at 8 a.m.
Where: The Rose Garden at Mesa Community College, 1833 West Southern Avenue, Mesa.
