Historic Roses - Class and Tour

Join us to learn about the various classes of old garden and heritage roses in this free class.  We'll meet at 10 a.m. in the Historic Rose Garden on Saturday (April 22) to hear about the roses and walk through the garden to see them in full bloom. 

Remember to wear sensible shoes as the ground is uneven.  Parking is available on surface streets (including Broadway).

Remembering Barbara

It was fitting to celebrate Barbara Oliva's life in the Historic Rose Garden that she worked in for so long and also fitting the roses received a much needed drizzling rain on her day.
