Rose Pruning Blitz!
Want to do something different this summer to help your community and get a free ice cream as a reward?
The Heritage Rose Garden needs volunteers to snip all the dead roses in order to promote more bloom. Volunteers will meet every second Tuesday of the month, 5:00-7:30 pm, starting June 8 until September 7, 2009, with a sweet payoff at the end. No experience necessary. It will be an enjoyable and rewarding way to spend a summer evening. The San Jose Heritage Rose Garden is located on Taylor Street, at Spring Street, just east of Coleman Avenue.
