Volunteers Needed for Balboa Park Rose Garden
First Meeting of Season: March 21, 2017 at 9:15

The Inez Grant Parker Rose Garden in Balboa Park is 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 the third Tuesday of each month at 9:15 a.m. is used to share information and direct needed work. Volunteers learn about roses, and also act as good will 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? Contact Mary Rose, bprosegardencorps@gmail.com.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
