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.  

2019 Orientations are scheduled for May 16th and May 22nd, 9am — 11:30am, you only need to attend one orientation.  Meet at the wooden kiosk down the stairs from the parking lot.  Arrive a bit early to receive a parking waiver.   For a volunteer orientation, email us at waparkroses@gmail.com.
