Free Rose Pruning Workshop
FREE Public Workshop – Rose Pruning Workshop for High Desert Rose Gardening
Date: April 11 – 9am – 11am.
Presenter: Katherine O’Brien – President of the Santa Fe Rose Society and previous owner of Santa Fe Greenhouses.
Come join us for free instruction and training on proper rose pruning for this area! We will meet at the Railyard Park Community Room for initial instruction and discussion then head out to the beautiful Rose Ramada in the Park to get some individualized and hands-0n practice pruning the roses in the Railyard Park.
We will be training on actual roses in the Park – so dress accordingly (closed-toe shoes, hat, sunglasses, water, clothes you can get dirty, etc.) We will provide gloves and will have tools to train with. If you have your own pruners, clippers and gloves, we ask that you bring them in case we have a large crowd and run out of our own supplies of clippers. We thank you in advance.
Meet at the Railyard Park Community Room, behind SITE Santa Fe. Free parking for the duration of the workshop will be available for those that sign in. Turn down Callejon St. alongside the railroad tracks, directly across from the Farmers Market, and park in the lot.
This FREE workshop acquaints volunteers or those interested in rose maintenance for their own homes with techniques and information on how to properly prune rose bushes for maximum bloom production and long, vibrant life. Accompanied by hands-on practice in the Railyard Park rose garden. There’s no volunteer commitment, but we’d love you to utilize your newfound skills in the Railyard Park some day, too!
