We need deadheaders to help prune spent flowers during the rose season, May through September. Interested? Deadheading is a relaxing, satisfying task that helps keep the garden looking its best.

2020 is a difficult year.  If you have not volunteered at the International Rose Test Garden, best hold off volunteering until 2021 please.  (If you are a Master Gardener intern, you are welcome to volunteer.)  If you have questions, email us at waparkroses@gmail.com.
