ABOUT EAST BAY ROSE SOCIETY
Come and join the fun! We talk Roses !!!!
 

The East Bay Rose Society is a non-profit hobby organization interested in promoting the enjoyment of roses. Through the exchange of ideas, cultural practices, and with goodwill and fellowship, the society strives to upgrade the standard and excellence of the rose in Alameda County, CA and the surrounding area.

Whether you have one rose bush or a hundred, you can benefit by becoming a member of our society. Our meetings cover all topics pertaining to rose growing and more! Several of our members are also Consulting Rosarians, approved by the American Rose Society, always willing to share their knowledge with others.

 Rose Shows - recent rose show results

Our Society meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month, from January through October. Meetings are at 7:30 PM and are held at the Lakeside Park Garden Center, 666 Bellevue, Oakland CA. Please come join a truly dedicated group of rosarians who would like to share their rose growing experiences with you.

Each monthly meeting deals with some aspect of roses, such as rose selection, soil preparation, planting methods, spraying programs, exhibiting, pruning, etc. Each year we host a rose show - a standard show sanctioned by the American Rose Society in the spring and a community show in the fall.

Throughout the year there are tours of rose gardens, trips to nurseries, workshops and seminars on all aspects of growing good roses.

We present interesting programs on:

pruning
planting
landscaping with roses
rose diseases
spraying
fertilizers
organic methods
rose arrangements
soil preparation
grooming tips
exhibiting tips
rose culture
methods of propagation
watering techniques
easy roses to grow
... and much, much more.

If you'd like to become a member, you can join at one of our monthly meetings. If you can't make the meetings and would like to join anyway (to receive a copy of our newsletter), download and print our handy membership form.
