Heritage Rose Garden – San Jose

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. 

Time: 9:00 am-12:00 every Wednesday & Saturday (8:00-11:00 am October-May)
