It’s time to prune roses to get them ready to bloom their best and have the best health! The Sequim Botanical Garden Society is offering an opportunity to learn how to prune roses with Lee Bowen, long-time volunteer in Sequim and the Bellevue Public Gardens, and grower of roses himself. Come with clippers and gloves from 1:00-3:00 on Saturday, February 26, 2022, see a demonstration from Lee, and get practice yourself under him and other Garden volunteers.   

The Gardens are located at the Water Reuse Demonstration Site just north of Carrie Blake Community Park. Enter at the Fir Street entrance, park in the lot there, and walk across the footbridge to the Terraced Gardens. The roses are located at the first staircase, and the demonstration will take place there. Hope to see you! 

These “Work to Learn” Parties are an opportunity for novice and seasoned gardeners to volunteer together to cultivate what makes our community exceptional and flourishing. You don’t have to get in the dirt to learn, but if you want to help, please bring your gardening gloves, your tools, sunscreen, and hats and come mingle with other members of the community dedicated to growing a botanical garden that will enchant and educate visitors. Look for yellow signs to find parking near the Water Reuse entrance and near the band shell in the park.  

The Sequim Botanical Garden Society is a volunteer partner with the City of Sequim and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We provide educational information and a visual demonstration of what can be done in home gardening with research-based horticultural practices. The Terrace Garden is located near the band shell in Carrie Blake Community Park. Connect with us online or via email for inspiring and educational volunteer opportunities in the garden.
