The Altadena Community Garden and Pasadena Learning Gardens is offering a free workshop on Saturday February 2, 2013 at 11 a.m. at the Altadena Community Garden. Learn from Master Gardener Mark Rice and local rose expert Elvira Smith during this free hands-on workshop.
Bring gloves and clippers and, if you would like to start your own roses from clippings, one- or five-gallon plant containers filled with garden soil.
Please consider helping: We hope this workshop will mark the beginning of a community of rose experts who will transform the toil of winter pruning into valuable learning opportunities for others.
