Come join us in the beautiful Old City Cemetery’s Historic Rose Garden on Saturday, August 16, at 7:30 a.m. for an early morning hands-on event. (late risers are welcome) Stay as long as you like. We will be removing spent blooms from the many rosebushes and tidying up the garden which encourages repeat blooming of the roses in our treasured Historic Rose Garden.
Bring your own gloves (otherwise they will be provided). Tools and training will be provided and coffee and pastries will be served.
Workshops are free, however, donations are appreciated and go towards the restoration and preservation of the roses and cemetery artifacts.
The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance. For more information, call 916-448-0811 or 916-264-7839.
